Looking Things Over: Zora Neale Hurston

June 11 @ 12:15 pm1:00 pm
| Cost: $4 | Cost for Members: $2

This lecture has been postponed until further notice.

A central figure in the Harlem Renaissance, Zora Neale Hurston was a woman of enormous intelligence and talent. An outstanding novelist, journalist, folklorist, and anthropologist, Hurston believed in the beauty of black expressions and traditions. Her books Mules and Men and Their Eyes Were Watching God celebrate African American culture.

Although her work was praised by many, some attacked it, focusing on Hurston’s lifestyle and personality—her audaciousness, independence, and arrogance.

Presented by Gwendolyn Quezaire-Presutti, dramatist, historian, and storyteller, Woventales Productions LLC
