We need Thomas Sankara’s political vision today. By Heidi Chow (Jacobin, October 15, 2021). “Thomas Sankara, the socialist president of Burkina Faso, was assassinated 34 years ago today.

Thomas Sankara gave his life fighting Neocolonialism. By Benjamin Talton (Jacobin, April 17, 2021).

By Yanis Iqbal (Links: International Journal of Socialist Renewal, November 19, 2020). “A Pan-Africanist, internationalist and Marxist, he was committed to the total liberation of the oppressed masses from the clutches of imperialism. Instead of bourgeois nationalism, Sankara believed in radical nationalism.”

Thomas Sankara and the revolutionary birth of Burkina Faso. By Mamadou Diallo (Viewpoint Magazine, February 2018). “The Sankarist Revolution was the peak of a series of revolts, the breakdown of an inept cycle, and the beginning of a historical sequence that would see Upper Volta become Burkina Faso …”

Exhuming Thomas Sankara: Anti-Imperialism in Burkina Faso, 1983-87. By David Crawford Jones (Marxist Essays and Commentary, August 18, 2017). “There can be no doubt that Sankara represented the ‘great leader’ model of radical change.”
