Celebrate the Freedom to Read: INVISIBLE MAN

Robert Bain celebrates
INVISIBLE MAN, by Ralph Ellison

Invisible Man, published in 1952, by Ralph Ellison, became an instant classic as a work of fiction that chronicles a nameless narrator’s journey from a Southern Negro college to the urban center of Harlem, New York. While perhaps one of the best narrative depictions of the ever present racial ambiguities facing black society in both the South and the North it is also both a Southern and Northern unambiguous depiction of the precarious experience for blacks by other blacks.
