I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: That I am nobody but myself.
— Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man
Saturday, March 1st, we’re partnering with The Schomburg Center to present Ellison at 100: Reading Invisible Man. This week we’ll be sharing our favorite Ralph Ellison or Invisible Man quotes or artwork using #Ellison100. Stay tuned and use the hashtag to share your favorite quotes and artwork too!
