If you have gone to Google today, you will see an art graphic of Zora Neale Hurston. It would of been her 123rd birthday. I remember reading “Their Eyes are Watching God,” in college. I remember it made a profound impact on my life as a young adult. I finally felt I was actually learning some truths of who people were, how they people really lived, and it wasn’t sugar coated. I learned all of this from the fiction books some amazing authors wrote during the time of the Harlem Renaissance. I don’t know which I loved more reading their fiction or their biographies. If you would like to learn more about this Zora Neale Hurston, you can visit her official website.
