    • Abstract:
      This article presents an analysis of Ralph Ellison's book "Invisible Man," which examines African American social radicalism in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The book's relation to the radicalism of the author's youth is the source of its definition of an alternative basis for African American social struggle. Further, the book's association with the African American radicalism of its time helps explain the oft-noted ambivalence of its conclusion on such matters as artistic and political action, and individual, as opposed to group freedom.
