2019 BLACK HISTORY MONTH CAMPAIGN
About Zora Neale Hurston
According to James Brown, “This is a Man’s World.” However, women have proven feminine power is undeniable in shaping the world in which we live today.
Zora Neale Hurston is considered one of the titans of twentieth-century African American literature. More than a decade after her death, another great talent helped to revive interest in Hurston and her work: Alice Walker wrote about Hurston in the essay "In Search of Zora Neale Hurston," published in Ms. magazine in 1975. Walker's essay helped introduce Hurston to a new generation of readers and encouraged publishers to print new editions of Hurston's long-out-of-print novels and other writings.
Hurston's works touched on the African-American experience and her struggles as an African-American woman. A writer and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston was a fixture of that era and author of the masterwork “Their Eyes Were Watching God”.
Black women have played many important roles in US History since the days of the American Revolution. In honor of Black History Month, we pay homage to women who were, are and always will be trailblazers in our literary history in hope that global discourse will be stimulated, and cultures come to understand one another and the power of oneness.
