Black Literary Images (1)

[By Kenton Rambsy]

A key figure during the Harlem Renaissance and author of Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937), Zora Neale Hurston’s interests in folklore and intra-racial conflicts served as the basis for the majority of her anthropological studies, short stories, and novels.

Usually, two images of Hurston are widely circulated (the top images at the top of the compilation). These images have the ability to leave lasting impressions on who Hurston was and, more importantly, what she looked like. The compilation above celebrates the lesser-known images of Hurston that may give people insight into the her diverse nature and interests.
