dc.rights Ralph Ellison

Ellison’s first novel, which masterfully recounts the experiences of an unnamed black narrator who navigates life in the South and then in New York City, has been challenged or banned in schools since it’s publication in 1952. The most common reasons cited for banning are: obscene language, sexual content, and violence. An un-cited reason may be Ellison’s honest and unflinching portrayal of racism in America.
