Zora Neale Hurston

Zora Neal Hurston

Zora Neale Hurston studied anthropology at Barnard and Columbia University, did research on survival of West African religion in the Americas, wrote a number of best selling books (including the personal CooperToons favorite Tell My Horse), and wrote a play in collaboration with poet Langston Hughes which proved controversial. That is the writing of the play proved controverial, not the play itself. But controversy never bothered Zora, and so for a little more about the outspoken lady of American letters - in an essay that the author of CooperToons hopes will not be controversial - click here.
