"Black Face, White Masks" provides the creative basis for Roam mas bands intended presentation for Trinidad Carnival 2013.   "Black Face, White Masks" is the title of a book written by Martinique's Franz Fanon back in 1952.  I'll be honest, this is the first time I am hearing about this book and I had to have a quick read of the wikipedia entry:
Fanon uses psychoanalysis and psychoanalytical theory to explain the feelings of dependency and inadequacy that Black people experience in a White world. He speaks of the divided self-perception of the Black Subject who has lost his native cultural originality and embraced the culture of the mother country. As a result of the inferiority complex engendered in the mind of the Black Subject, he will try to appropriate and imitate the cultural code of the colonizer.
I have grown accustomed to bikini and beads bands choosing more "fluffy" material to base their mas presentations on.  So I'm anxious to see what Roam The Mas Band produces using such a deep and clearly intense text for inspiration.
