“Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.” –Zora Neale Hurston
Zora Neale Hurston was an american anthropologist, who traveled extensively in the caribbean for her research. While in New York during the Harlem renaissance, Hurston developed her writing craft. She is well known for the novel Their Eyes are Watching God. Although famous for her contributions to American literature, she did not make money off of her writing. When she passed away, there was not enough money to give her a proper burial.
