Zora Neale Hurston's grave site

Zora Neale Hurston's grave site

Date
1987
Description
Four color slides. Zora Neale Hurston was a major literary figure, known as one of the nation's preeminent African American writers, with such titles as Their Eyes Were Watching God. She was from Eatonville, and had studied anthropology under Franz Boaz. In 1959, after suffering a stroke, Hurston was forced to enter a welfare home where she died in 1960. She was buried in an unmarked grave and her work languished in relative obscurity until 1975, when famed novelist Alice Walker published the article "In Search of Zora Neale Hurston" in Ms. magazine. In the article, Walker recounts her experiences of searching for, finding, and marking Hurston's grave. The Florida Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1987 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalis, Steve Fragos, Merri Belland, and Barbara Seitz as preliminary research for a joint folk art between the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Museum of History. The field researchers focused on those areas previously overlooked by FFP staff. The research focused on identifying folk artists and locating appropriate exhibit objects.

The Traditional Sweetgrass Basket Making and Ukrainian Egg Decorating Workshop

The Traditional Sweetgrass Basket Making and Ukrainian Egg Decorating Workshop

Date
1989-03-11
Description
Thirty-five slides. Images from 1989 spring folk workshop, arranged by Florida folklorist Fant and held at the Stephen Foster Center. The instructors were Garrison and Gurley. Garrison grew up in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, but lived in Jacksonville from the 1960s on. She learned sweetgrass basket making, a New World adaptation of an Old World skill, at age three from her family in South Carolina. She made her basket by coiling pine needles and sweetgrass, then sewing them with palmetto frond strips, using a spoon (called a bone) to help bind the strips through. Gurley was born in a village in the Ukraine, where she learned traditional egg decorating (pysanky). Her family emigrated to the US just after World War II, and moved to Florida in 1973 (first White Springs, later St. Petersburg). Using a stylus called a kystka, she draws the designs with wax, then dips the egg into various paints for the many colors used.
