In 1948, Mayotte Capécia, author of the novel Je suis Martinique , was criticized by the well-known psychiatrist and writer Frantz Fanon. ​For years Capécia was only known due to Fanon's criticism which in turn made her the face of the lactification complex (pathology invented by Fanon). From Fanon to Capécia is a work of archiving, recognition and exploration of the experience of a black woman during the colonial era.
