The C.O.W.S. Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man Part 4

Friday, May 25th 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 4th study session on Ralph Ellison’s 1952 classic, Invisible Man. One of Gus’s top five all-time works of literature, Ellison’s novel was selected for the 1953 National Book Award and has been reviewed and lionized around the world for almost 75 years. Invisible Man recounts an unnamed black male struggling through the confusion of White Supremacy (Racism). Last week’s segment detailed the narrator’s dread after having so much trouble chauffeuring Mr. Norton, a White Man. Before learning his fate from Dr. Bledsoe, the black president of the college, the narrator is ordered to attend a campus sermon by the Rev. Homer A. Barbee from Chicago. Rev. Barbee explains the origins of the school, and how the black Founder of the college invested his spirit in constructing an academy for the betterment of black people. After blind Rev. Barbee’s dramatic rendition of school lore, the main character feels a suffocating sense of guilt for in anyway jeopardizing the school. He’s left contemplating the apocalyptic thought of being expelled from campus and forced to return home, a disgrace.


The C.O.W.S. Radio Program is specifically engineered for black & non-white listeners – Victims of White Supremacy. The purpose of this program is to provide Victims of White Supremacy with constructive information and suggestions on how to counter Racist Woman & Racist Man.
