Who is the most influential person in your life? (Ethiopia)


Ermias Gebreyes, 49, Head Language Department of the Goethe-Institut Addis Ababa

English:

The most influential person in my life was Frantz Fanon. The French-Martinique writer and revolutionary had written extensively on blackness and the place of the black man in the 20th century. His writings helped me understand myself and to be in peace with myself. Especially his books “The Wretched of This Earth” and “White Mask and Black Face” has changed the way I see the whole world and has awakened my black consciousness.

German:

Die einflussreichste Person in meinem Leben war Frantz Fanon. Der auf der Insel Martinique geborene Autor und Revolutionär hat umfassend zu den Themen blackness und auch über die Rolle der Schwarzen im 20. Jahrhundert geschrieben. Seine Schriften haben mir geholfen, mich selbst besser zu verstehen und eine Art inneren Frieden zu finden. Vor allem seine Bücher „The Wretched of This Earth“ und „White Mask and Black Face“ haben mein ganzes Weltbild verändert und mein black consciousness geweckt.
