About The Work

This work takes its title from the novel by Ralph Ellison.  Published in 1952, the book addresses social and intellectual issues facing African-Americans in the early twentieth century. The work was made in response to a KOS member who was murdered at age 14. The “IM” is pulled from a headline on the story that stated “MURDER VICTIM.” Rollins and KOS appropriated the IM of the headline in order the link this tragedy and the notion of being a victim with Ellison’s novel.
