        Invisible Man: The Trueblood Incident

        This video from the American Masters film Ralph Ellison: An American Journey features critical analysis of the protagonist’s encounter with Jim Trueblood in the novel Invisible Man.  Scholars discuss the possibility that Trueblood fabricated his incestuous relationship with his daughter in order to exploit wealthy white community leaders.
