DeAmon Harges gave this talk at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In Ralph Ellison’s novel, The Invisible Man, a man discovers his true self and how to others he’s invisible. People judge him because of where he lives. They see everything but him; he’s a figment of their imagination. His invisibility isn’t the problem; it was the construction of their eyes. In marginalized places, peoples gifts are invisible.
