  4. Hopefully the awareness of other people will stick this time--I can believe that half a century after the Civil Rights movement, we're still on the first page. The writings of Ellison, Richard Wright and James Baldwin are all important voices that will hopefully be added with a new generation of authors. Blessings

  8. HI Mario - and some more desperately sadly ... I must get out Ellison's book ... or make a plan to read it somehow. Let us have faith for the future of this invisibility and hope the world will change - I do hope so. Thanks for reminding me/us about Ellison's classic - all the best and stay safe - Hilary
