In Conversation: The Zora Neale Hurston I Remember

Rollins College has a historic link to Zora Neale Hurston. As coordinator of the Africa and African-American Studies program, I've tried to build strong relationship. For me the focus is on the community that create Hurston and the demonstration of African-American agency in late 19th century and early 20th century. In the face of violence and systemic exclusion they strived to create a space to thrive.
