The exhibit "Zora Neale Hurston in the History of American Arts and Letters," which highlights the life, art, and legacy of the path-breaking African American novelist is on display now through April 3, 2011 in the CSU Michael Schwartz Library (first floor). The exhibit is in celebration of Women's History Month.
Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960) was an anthropologist, novelist, and folklorist. She is considered to be one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Hurston was a product of the Harlem Renaissance, and she was regarded as one of its most extraordinary literary figures. Her works inspired writers such as Ralph Ellison, Toni Morison, Gayle Jones, Alice Walker, and Toni Cade Bambara. She is most famous for her 1937 novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God..
