In the works of such writers as Ralph Ellison, Gloria Naylor, Brent Wade, Ishmael Reed, Jill Nelson, and Bebe Moore Campbell, we see that blacks who work in predominantly white corporations pay a terrible emotional and moral price. Wade and Nelson convey that such situations have caused many blacks to go quietly insane. Reed draws a rather frightening connection between the corporate and academic worlds. In Ellison's Invisible Man, the young narrator learns of the extent to which Northern corporations control the activities of a Southern black college, and understands that he is invisible because people refuse to see me.
