Zora Neale Hurston is considered one of the most important and influential modern American writers who wrote groundbreaking works about the culture and folk traditions of southern African Americans. Along with Langston Hughes, she was a central and celebrated figure during the Harlem Renaissance, and is best known for her 1937 masterpiece novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. Not only was Ms. Hurston a successful novelist, essayist, journalist and playwright, but a talented anthropologist as well. Acclaimed authors of our time, including Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, and Alice Walker acknowledge Ms Hurston as their “literary foremother.”
