Ralph Ellison was an African-American writer and essayist, who's only novel, Invisible Man gained widespread critical success. Ellison's ambitious journey from a childhood of hardship and poverty to celebrated African American writer is chronicled through exclusive interviews and personal recollection. Invisible Man (1952) addresses issues pertinent to Black society and identity in the 1950's by using the protagonist's desire and determination to be visible as a metaphor for the entire African American community's struggle to be recognized in a world of prejudice and hostility. He remarked that "Literature is Colorblind", using racial issues as a means to express the universal dilemmas of identity and self-discovery. Despite the social and political boundaries in place during the 1950's for a black man with no formal education, Ellison has been compared to such writers as Melville and Hawthorne. 24 minutes of Bonus material for each program.
