General Note

  • She was an author and anthropologist. Her first book was Jonah's Gourd Vine.
  • Accompanying note: "Flamboyant and proud, Zora Neale Hurston was a brillant chronicler of African American life. Hurston grew up in Eatonville, Florida, the first incorporated all-black township in the United States; her imagination was fired by the rich oral tradition of the rural South and her sense of self undistorted by prejudice. 'I used to climb to the top of one of the huge chinaberry trees,' she wrote in her autobiography, '... and look out over the world. The most interesting thing that I saw was the horizon.... It grew upon me that I ought to walk out to the horizon and see what the end of the world was like.' Hurston set out to do just that, studying at Howard and Columbia universities. She was a lively presence in the Harlem Renaissance before undertaking the field studies of southern black folklore that would be documented in the classic Mules and Men (1935) and would permeate such luminous works of fiction as Their Eyes Were Watching God."
