Originally produced in 2006
Summary: A writer of novels, short stories, folktales, plays, and essays, Zora Neale Hurston combined a hunger for research and a desire to penetrate the deepest of popular beliefs with a truly exquisite narrative talent. This illuminating biography of Hurston--a compelling story of a free spirit who achieved national prominence yet died in obscurity--examines the rich legacy of her writings, which include "Mules and Men," "Their Eyes Were Watching God," "Tell My Horse," and "Dust Tracks on a Road." The program amply demonstrates that Hurston truly had, as it said in her high school yearbook, "A heart with room for every joy."
Contents: Introduction: The family story -- From Eatonville to literary success -- Writer's emergence -- Anthropological drive -- Recognized achievements -- Hurston's style: An analysis -- Regaining balance
