Zora Neale Hurston

Hurston in {{Circa|1935}}–43 Zora Neale Hurston (January 7, 1891 – January 28, 1960) was an American author, anthropologist, folklorist, and documentary filmmaker. She portrayed racial struggles in the early-20th-century American South and published research on Hoodoo and Caribbean Vodou. The most popular of her four novels is ''Their Eyes Were Watching God'', published in 1937. She also wrote more than 50 short stories, plays, and essays.

Hurston was born in Notasulga, Alabama, and moved with her family to Eatonville, Florida in 1894. She later used Eatonville as the setting for many of her stories. In her early career, Hurston conducted anthropological and ethnographic research as a scholar at Barnard College and Columbia University. She had an interest in African-American and Caribbean folklore, and how these contributed to the community's identity.

She also wrote about contemporary issues in the black community and became a central figure of the Harlem Renaissance. Her short satires, drawing from the African-American experience and racial division, were published in anthologies such as ''The New Negro'' and ''Fire!!'' After moving back to Florida, Hurston wrote and published her literary anthology on African-American folklore in North Florida, ''Mules and Men'' (1935), and her first three novels: ''Jonah's Gourd Vine'' (1934); ''Their Eyes Were Watching God'' (1937); and ''Moses, Man of the Mountain'' (1939). Also published during this time was ''Tell My Horse: Voodoo and Life in Haiti and Jamaica'' (1938), documenting her research on rituals in Jamaica and Haiti.

Hurston's works concerned both the African-American experience and her struggles as an African-American woman. Her novels went relatively unrecognized by the literary world for decades. In 1975, fifteen years after Hurston's death, interest in her work was revived after author Alice Walker published an article, "In Search of Zora Neale Hurston" (later retitled "Looking for Zora"), in ''Ms.'' magazine. In 2001, Hurston's manuscript ''Every Tongue Got to Confess'', a collection of folktales gathered in the 1920s, was published after being discovered in the Smithsonian archives. Her nonfiction book ''Barracoon: The Story of the Last "Black Cargo"'', about the life of Cudjoe Lewis (Kossola), was published in 2018. Provided by Wikipedia
