Course Description:

Ellison’s "Invisible Man," which won the National Book Award for Fiction in 1953, is now 70 years old. It addresses 1930s Harlem, the Great Migration, segregation, and Black leftist movements of the time; and yet, so much of the novel still depicts current African-American life circumstances in the United States. Ellison’s style moves between realism and surrealism, between the “visible” and the imagined “invisible.” Let’s read it together in hopes of discerning the invisible and making it matter.
