Today’s black history month audio takeover contribution comes from Yvadney Davis honouring the late great Zora Neale Hurston. I smiled so hard when I listened to Yvadney’s audio. Zora Neale Hurston is a G! Her book Their Eyes Were Watching God is like a wholesome meal lovingly cooked by your grandma!
Yvadney talks about Zora Neale Hurston’s role in the Harlem Renaissance and how important and nuanced Zora Neal Hurston’s work is.
Thank you for choosing such a legend Yvadney.
