Zora Neale Hurston's grave site

Date

Collection
Florida Folklife Collection
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 &quot;In Search of Zora Neale Hurston&quot; 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.

Interview with Stetson Kennedy

Collection
Florida Folklife Collection
Description
Three reel to reel recordings. In the interview, Kennedy discusses Stanley Papio; the WPA and the Federal Writers Project; working with anthropologist/writer Zora Neale Hurston; Carita Doggett Corse; collecting folklife during the 1930s; painter Mario Sanchez; his many books; infiltrating the KKK; work with labor unions; and the reprinting of the Folk Songs of Florida by Alton Morris, and Kennedy's Palmetto Country. Stetson Kennedy was one of the earliest folklorists working in Florida. Born in 1916, the Jacksonville native began collecting Northeast Florida folk sayings as a teenager. After a stint at the University of Florida, Kennedy joined the Florida WPA Writers Project in 1937 to administer the folklore, oral history, and ethnic studies section. Among the workers he supervised was novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston. Soon thereafter he published Palmetto Country, an exploration of Florida folklife edited by Erskine Caldwell. His papers from the WPA are housed within the Florida Folklife Collection. Although he remained a lifelong folklife supporter, in the 1940s and 1950s, Kennedy also worked to end Jim Crow laws and helped exposed the Ku Klux Klan with several publications. The recipient of many awards, including the Florida Folk Heritage Award and the NAACP Freedom Award, he was also the subject of Library of Congress' folklorist Peggy Bulger's dissertation. Among his books are Southern Exposure, The Klan Unmasked, and South Florida Folklife, co-authored with Bulger and Tina Bucuvalas. Bulger wrote her dissertation on Kennedy. Copied onto C81-71, C81-72 & C81-73.
