Summary, etc.: This program vividly recounts the rough road from poverty to national stardom for writer Ralph Ellison. It covers Ellison's life from his early years growing up in a segregated society in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at the turn of the 20th century, the many challenges he hurdled to learn his skill of being a writer and his vault to fame. Ellison's ability to relate the struggle African Americans faced in a racially polarized society in his moving novel "Invisible Man" made him nationally famous. His great determination to be recognized as a writer is told.
