Celebrate Black History Month!

Zora Neale Hurston "was a novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist whose fictional and factual accounts of black heritage remain unparalleled." She framed the lives of southern black folk with all their juices, drama, creativity, wit, and humor intact. Her folktales weave a vibrant tapestry that celebrates African American life in the rural South and represents a major part of her literary legacy. Zora enjoyed telling the folktales she collected. She celebrated the African American culture of the rural South, because she believed that black people had wonderful stories that the world needed to hear, and she told them proudly.

Gwendolyn Quezaire-Presutti will present a dramatic performance as Ms. Zora Neale Hurston, reminiscing about slices of her life and the Folktales.
