Unlike the nameless hero of his landmark novel, Ralph Ellison was no "Invisible Man." When his searing, surreal tale of a young black man's quest for identity in racist America was published in 1952, Ellison became a literary sensation.

SACRAMENTO--Assemblyman Steven Bradford (D-Gardena) was at the White House on Thursday for the unveiling of President Obama's new program to help young men of color. The initiative, called "My Brother's Keeper," brings together government agencies, philanthropic foundations and businesses to improve the lives of young black and Latino men, in an aim to stop the "school-to-prison pipeline. " Bradford chairs the Assembly Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color, which has examined disparities in health, economic opportunity and education for minorities.  "History shows how the justice system and the educational system has challenged both boys and men of color," Bradford said in an interview.  Bradford said he looked forward to sharing his input for the national initiative and that wants to see an action plan -- "not just talk" -- and federal resources devoted to improving opportunities for minority youth.
