This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book develops the theme of the franco-phone contextualisation of Peau noire by concentrating on the specifically Martinican references in the text which have either been effaced or distorted in subsequent representations of Frantz Fanon. It situates Peau noire in the context of racism in metropolitan France. The book focuses specifically on the relationship between anti-Semitism and anti-Black racism. It discusses Fanon's engagement with another of Paul Sartre's texts, 'Orphée noir', which he wrote as introduction to Léopold Senghor's Anthologie de la nouvelle poésie nègre et malgache de langue française. The book also discusses Fanon's engagement with Sartre and the tension between universalism and particularism. It traces Fanon's treatment of unconscious processes informing Negrophobia. The book explores different aspects of Fanon's engagement with Sartre in Peau noire.
