by Ralph Ellison
This novel is based in the 1950's and follows the journey of an African American man, who remains unnamed, trying to succeed in a primarily "white" community. He realizes through many challenges he is "invisible" to society.
In my opinion this book was very bad and the only reason I read it was because of school. This book had a lot of adult content.
I do not recommend this book to anyone under 16 years of age. This book has a lot of sexual content including rape and incest. It also shows how poorly African American's were treated in the early 20th century.
