Zora! Let the People Sing!
Now one of the most admired figures in African-American literature, Zora Neale Hurston came to fiction writing late in life and slid back into obscurity relatively quickly. Alice Walker and others rediscovered herâ€”and her seminal work, Their Eyes Were Watching Godâ€”in the 1970s. Zora! Let the People Sing! celebrates the life of the author, cultural anthropologist, and folklorist, starting in small-town Florida and shifting to the artistic upheaval of the Harlem Renaissance. The play’s combination of drama, poetry, song, and folktales aims to communicate Zora’s intellectual heft, colorful personality, and controversial opinions. It was written by Nykieria Chaney, an accomplished spoken-word artist who also develops educational art programs about HIV/AIDS.
