Bearing the title of the book by Frantz Fanon which inspired this work, Black Skin, White Masks questions the colonization of language. Often quoted as being one of the most important authors of postcolonial theories, in 1952 Fanon tackled not only the power relations between colonizers and colonized, but also the relations between the person of colour and their "community".
