Zora Neale Hurston was one of the most important and celebrated figures to emerge from the Harlem Renaissance. Outspoken, spirited and gifted, Ms. Hurston was a prolific African-American writer of the 1930’s, her books defining the black American experience. In this dramatic biography, Zora invites the audience into her exemplary life, rich with folklore, intimate portraits of her contemporaries, and excerpts from her significant body of literary work. Incorporating music from the era the story focuses on Zora’s battle to preserve her people’s culture and to live an authentic life against all odds. Having played at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC this continues to be a favorite on the national scene.
