This Music Demanded Action: Rereading Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, April 25

President Lee C. Bollinger and Provost Alan Brinkley cordially invite you to join them at a University Lecture to be given by Professor Robert G. O'Meally, Zora Neale Hurston Professor of English and Comparative Literature and director of the Center for Jazz Studies.
