Dual consciousness is a concept developed by Frantz Fanon in his book Black Skins, White Masks. It deals with the nature of the colonized subject, and the way in which they must simultaneously embrace two different cultural identities.
For a more complete understanding- the original concept "double consciousness" was used and explained in depth years before by W. E. B. Du Bois. Here “double consciousnesses,” which according to Du Bois means a “sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others”.
