    The influence of Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison on African American art

    Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison has been called a "master text," a revolutionary work which changed the nature of African American literature in the 1950s. How did Invisible Man reach more than just African American literature? Where can you see its influence in later works – not only in literature, but painting, poetry, photography, etc?

    • Looking at the race issues as well as the Marxist bent of the text would likely be a solid starting ground for evaluating how this novel has influenced other disciplines and how it speaks to other racial issues. Would make for a great interdisciplinary exploration. – mazzamura 7 years ago

As of late, however, more have become open to the aesthetics of tattooing. Employers have become less strict about tattoos being seen, and the art has reached a more broad audience.
