the legendary tod clifton

" . . . moving with an easy Negro stride out of the shadow into the light"

ally, rival, and opposite self of our unnamed protagonist, as well as my favorite character in the book - Tod Clifton seems to represent the anger and passion - and the internal polarity we currently face as young black men on the urban landscape

if you haven't had a chance to read the classic 'invisible man' by ralph ellison be sure to put it on your reading list!
