“I have the nerve to walk my own way, however hard, in my search for reality, rather than climb upon the rattling wagon of wishful illusions.” ― Zora Neale Hurston
Author, anthropologist, and folklorist Zora Neale Hurston was born on January 7th, 1891 (129 years ago this Tuesday) in Notasulga, Alabama. In honor of her birthday, this week we celebrate the woman Alice Walker called “a genius of the South.”
