For the month of August, we will be reading and debriefing Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God. This book has been said to synthesize the the identity of the Black women in the South in the early 20th century. Zora Neale Hurston was a phenomenal writer during the Harlem Renaissance era and her books are still best sellers throughout the United States. This month’s book is too not only get into the politics of self-identity of the Black women, but for males and females to understand the plight of self-control and struggle through the African American experience.

We will begin the discussion, right on this tab next Monday, August 12th on the first chapter. This gives participants to go out and get the book and begin to embark on Hurston’s craft!

Time is ticking!  We aren’t getting any younger! Lets stay informed and read!!!!
