The C.O.W.S. Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man Part 10

Friday, July 5th 7:00PM Eastern/ 4:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the tenth study session on Ralph Ellison’s 1952 superlative novel, Invisible Man. Gus T’s all-time favorite book, Ellison’s extraordinary text was selected for the 1953 National Book Award and has been inspected and exalted internationally for decades. The book chronicles an unnamed black male as he toils through the terrorism and deception of White Supremacy (Racism). Last week’s session introduced Brother Tarp, a black member of the Brotherhood. He and the main character discuss the organization, and Brother Tarp gifts the protagonist an iron shackle – similar the cuff Dr. Bledsoe owned. Brother Tarp shares that he was incarcerated for 19 years for telling a (White) man “no.” Soon there after, the protagonist is accused of trying to subvert the Brotherhood. Brother Wrestrum reported to the White members that the main character had sinister motives for self-aggrandizement, not universal brotherhood. The Whites decide to banish the protagonist from his Harlem office, and change his assignment to “the woman question.” He decides to accept this assignment gleefully, his loyalty to the Brotherhood unshaken.


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.
