Summer Chautauqua Series: Zora Neale Hurston – NEGA History Center
July 12 @ 7:00 pm
Southern Writers: Zora Neale Hurston
Professional living history interpreter Chiara Richardson will portray author Zora Neale Hurston during our second Summer Chautauqua performance.
Well known as a fiction writer, Zora Neale Hurston was also an anthropologist whose research greatly influenced her literary style and themes. Many of her stories are inspired by her childhood in the small town of Eatonville, Florida in the early 1900s. Hurston would later collect the African-American folklore of Eatonville and the South during her anthropological research.
