Zora Neale Hurston Zora Neale Hurston was an American author who wrote stories, novels, anthropological folklore and an autobiography. She died in 1960 but her works have increased in popularity and are passing the test of time with staying power. She was a unique artist and scientist who produced for us a large body of work that stands equal to any body of work in American Literature and world literature. About writing she wrote: Anyway, the force from somewhere in Space which commands you to write in the first place, gives you no choice. You take up the pen when you are told, and write what is commanded. There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you. Works that are readily available by her include:

    photo by Carl Van Vechten
    Zora Neale Hurston was born on January 7, 1891, in Eatonville, Florida. Her hometown and her experiences there provided inspiration for several of her novels, including the autobiographical Dust Tracks on the Road. Hurston attended Morgan Academy (now Morgan State University) in Baltimore. After completing the high school requirements there, she studied at Howard University in Washington, D.C. In 1925, she submitted a story, "Spunk," and a play, "Color Struck," to Opportunity magazine's literary contest, and won second place awards. From 1925 through 1927 she attended Barnard College, studying anthropology with Dr. Franz Boas. She subsequently did field research recording the folklore and ways of African Americans, first in Harlem, then throughout the rural South. Her work played a large role in preserving the folk traditions and cultural heritage of African Americans. She expressed her genius by combining her field notes with some autobiography and a vivid imagination to create some of the most exciting, authentic literature of the twentieth century. Hurston was ahead of her time. Her literary activities were influential in bridging the gap between what came to be known as the first and second phases of the Harlem Renaissance. She began writing short stories in the 1920s, but her major achievements were generally between 1931 and 1943, when she wrote scholarly works on folklore and published six major novels. She was on the vanguard of the modern literary movement. Several of her books won recognition and her stories were published in the leading literary magazines of the times.

    Zora Neale Hurston
    Zora Neale Hurston was a novelist, folklorist and anthropologist. She was raised in Eatonville, Florida, where her parents moved shortly after her birth. Her mother died when she was a young girl, and Zora never quite took to her step mother, leaving home at a relatively young age. "After sallying forth from Eatonville she made her way through Barnard and Columbia, where she studied under the eminent anthropologist Franz Boas. But then, instead of clinging to the library stacks to write learned papers for academia to ponder, she went back home to Eatonville, and to the Florida Everglades, and the Georgia Sea Islands, and to New Orleans and Haiti to soak up the speech, songs, music and tales of Black folk, and put it all down on paper and phonographic discs" (Kennedy 1991). Alice Walker , who discovered Zora’s works during the 1970’s. She also sought out Zora’s unmarked grave and placed a headstone upon it, calling Zora "the Genius of the South". For the past decade, her home town of Eatonville has celebrated an annual festival library in Fort Pierce, FL has been named after her, and

    Zora Neale Hurston
    Zora Neale Hurston is probably best known today as the author of THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD (1937) and as one of the most prolific participants in the Harlem Renaissance. Despite the many obstacles she endured, Hurston attempted to live her life to the fullest. Like many African-American women, she wore many hats. She was not only a novelist, folklorist and anthropologist, she was also an essayist and playwright. She knew how to have a good time and shocked many (while delighting others) by "being herself" and living her life as she pleased.
    "I am not tragically colored. There is no great sorrow dammed up in my soul, nor lurking behind my eyes. I do not mind at all. I do not belong to the sobbing school of Negrohood who hold that nature somehow has given them a lowdown dirty deal and whose feelings are all hurt about it. ...No, I do not weep at the worldI am too busy sharpening my oyster knife." - From "How It Feels To Be Colored Me," World Tomorrow, 1928
    Zora was born in the all-black town of Eatonville, Florida on January 7, 1891. Her mother Lucy Potts Hurston, a former schoolteacher, died when Zora was a child. Her father John Hurston was a carpenter and Baptist preacher. Zora was the fifth child of John and Lucy's eight children.

    Zora Neale Hurston (1891or 1901 1960) So, here goes . Zora Neale Hurstonbrash,colorful, intelligent, vivacious, funny, wise, and totally unexpected.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891or 1901 -1960) To talk about Zora Neale Hurston’s writing, one has to talk about her personality, and that’s the most difficult thing anyone can attempt. No one person can define or even know about all the nuances of a person’s life, dreams, ideas, hopes, or fears in order to discuss the spirit or soul of someone else. What is the essence of a person? What makes them who they are? What shapes their personality so that we can see it and understand it? These questions cannot really be fully answered. And yet, an attempt must at least be made, for to get to know Zora, the person and personality, is to get to the heart of her writing. And, to get to the heart of her writing is to get to the spirit of celebrating African American life which pervaded the Harlem Renaissance. So, here goes.... Zora Neale Hurstonbrash, colorful, intelligent, vivacious, funny, wise, and totally unexpected. In Toni Morrison’s highly acclaimed novel Beloved , she writes, "Definitions belong to the definers." Morrison means that people in power, the definers, are the ones who control how everyone else views the world and the things in it. In America, the definers were white and the definition for anything or anyone black was usually very negative. Enter Ms. Hurstonessayist, novelist, short story writer, and cultural anthropologistwho chose to claim the right to define herself and who made it seem ridiculous for anyone else to try and do the job for her. Describing her life growing up in the almost all-black town of Eatonville, Florida, Hurston wrote that being black and being female was the average thing to be. It was not unusual. It was not filled with hardship. It was not something to be proud of, ashamed of, or even thought about. Instead, it was just how to be. In this essay Hurston made it clear that to be black was to be normal. There was nothng aberrant about it or about the fact that she enjoyed her blackness. Also, there was nothing paradoxical about being a woman, being intelligent, and being a writer. Hurston refused to acknowledge any precedent or tradition that tried to prescribe a life for her within limits she did not set herself.

    Zora Neale Hurston
    Welcome to Rainblessed and the Zora Neale Hurston page
    I read Zora for the first time in the Spring of 1996 in a Norton's Anthology text for a Writing Class. It was Zora's wonderful How It Feels To Be Colored Me . I was entranced by the dancing vitality of her writing. I felt energized just reading it, and I immediately wondered "Who IS this woman?" and also, "Why have I never heard of her before?" All of this sent me searching the shelves of used book stores (my favorite haunts) looking for more Zora. That little 4 page declaration had made a strong impression, and I wanted to read more ! It took me a while, however, to find her again. As I read that first-encountered story, I didn't know that it was purest Zora strong, outspoken, highly individualistic, and not afraid to stir up trouble. I later discovered that Zora placed herself in an unfavorable position with some of her brethren literati when she made statements like: "...I am not tragically colored. There is no great sorrow dammed up in my soul, nor lurking behind my eyes. I do not mind at all." "Someone is always at my elbow reminding me that I am the granddaughter of slaves. It fails to register depression with me."

    Zora Neale Hurston (1901 - 1960) Singularly dedicated to the preservation of black culture and traditions, Hurston traveled throughout the South collecting folklore and mythology. During the 1930s she was able to garner WPA grants and a Guggenheim Fellowship. She published several collections of stories, as well as novels and an autobiography, Dust Tracks on a Road. But by the 1950s, she was no longer able to find any support for her writing and was forced to work as a teacher, a librarian, and even a maid. She suffered a stroke in 1959 and died in 1960 as an indigent and unknown patient in a county welfare home. Thirteen years later the writer Alice Walker and Hurston scholar Charlotte Hunt placed a commemorative tombstone on her previously unmarked grave, reading: "Zora Neale Hurston, a Genius of the South, Novelist, Folklorist, Anthropologist, 1901 - 1960."

    18. Zora Neale Hurston Discussion Transcripts
    An examination of Their Eyes Were Watching God recorded at Ohio University in 1997.
    On June 29, 1997 professors of literature at Ohio University, Marilyn Atlas and Edgar Whan, came to Studio B in the Ohio University Telecommunications Center to record a discussion about the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. They were joined by guest scholar Annette Oxindine of Wright State University. Here are the transcripts of the conversation. Marilyn Atlas Their Eyes Were Watching God "It was a spring afternoon in West Florida. Janie had spent most of the day under a blossoming pear tree in the back-yard. She had been spending every minute that she could steal from her chores under that tree for the last three days. That was to say, ever since the first tiny bloom had opened. It had called her to come and gaze on a mystery. From barren brown stems to glistening leaf-buds; from the leaf-buds to snowy virginity of bloom. It stirred her tremendously. How? Why? It was like a flute song forgotten in another existence and remembered again. What? "How? Why? This singing she heard that had nothing to do with her ears. The rose of the world was breathing out smell. It followed her through all her waking moments and caressed her in her sleep. It connected itself with other vaguely felt matters that had struck her outside observation and buried themselves in her flesh. Now they emerged and quested about her consciousness.

    Zora Neale Hurston January 7 January 28 Born in Notasulga, Alabama, Hurston grew up in Florida. Hurston later attended Howard University while working as a manicurist. In 1925 she went to New York City, drawn by the circle of creative black artists (now known as the Harlem Renaissance), and she began writing fiction. Annie Nathan Meyer, founder of Barnard College, found a scholarship for Hurston. Hurston began her study of anthropology at Barnard under Franz Boaz, studying also with Ruth Benedict and Gladys Reichard. With the help of Boaz and Elsie Clews Parsons, Hurston was able to win a six-month grant she used to collect African American folklore.
