BH Zora Neale Hurston (13) RE: Zora Neale Hurston 11 Feb 03


Yes she was. I have not heard the tapes, but I know that she also did archeology, worked with Alan Lomax for a time collecting music from the Sea Islands. Also put together some concerts---not a good singer thugh.

Her earlier life is truly a fascinating thing to read through. How she got her education---and her travels with a Gilbert & Sullivan troupe are integral to what she later became.

Hey---when you are a staff of one you have to read all that is sent to you---as Valerie Boyd told me after the interview---you really read this--unlike other interviews I have done.

It is quite a book---if you want to know ZNH.

Hope you tune in.
