Abstract: In the beginning of this research one main problem was found: in Brazil there are few studies about African American Literature. The significant pieces of information present in this paper were found on reliable websites or academic articles written by people from Universities abroad. Since the topic is very specific, it is a problem to be understood. The lack of sources, however, just emphasized the necessity of available researches on the field in the country. One of the main goals of this research is to provide Brazilian scholars and English teachers with a source of information and a starting point on the subject. The second one is to motivate the reading, studying and teaching African American Literature in Brazilian schools, even though few teachers seem to be interested in it. Teaching black literature in schools is important for a simple and clear reason: to show the students that not only in Brazil racism is a problem unsolved, but also in other (and First World) countries. For this reason, this research was divided in two parts: the first one is meant to provide information about the history and developing of this literature, as well as the most important authors of each historical period. The second part is an analysis on Ralph Ellison’s best seller Invisible Man, not only the historical context in which the book was released is included in this section, but also its reception and study. Ellison’s book was chosen for its importance in the history of this literature and symbolism.
