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.
