We have all heard of the book Invisible Man written by Ralph Ellison. This biography tells the story of how a man willed himself to be a writer. Ellison originally started college as a music major and he never completed his degree. He tried boxing, he was a sculptor /artist, and then he became a writer. Invisible Man beat Ernest Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea for the National Book Award. Invisible Man was the only book ever published by Ellison and the biography tells that story.
Mirror to America: the Autobiography of John Hope Franklin, by John Hope Franklin
Whether aiding Thurgood Marshall's preparation for arguing Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, marching to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965, or testifying against Robert Bork's nomination to the Supreme Court in 1987, Franklin has pushed the national conversation on race toward humanity and equality, a life long effort that earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in 1995. Intimate, at times revelatory, Mirror to America chronicles Franklin's life and this nation's racial transformation in the twentieth century, and is a powerful reminder of the extent to which the problem of America remains the problem of color.
