Ellison's novel addresses many of the social and intellectual issues facing African-Americans in the early twentieth century, including black nationalism, the relationship between black identity and Marxism, and the reformist racial policies of Booker T. Washington, as well as issues of individuality and personal identity. Its use of profanity, violence and sexual imagery led to parents of some US school children to request its removal from their libraries.
