Thread Name: Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960)
Subject: RE: Zora Neale Hurston
Hurston wound up her days working as a maid or cleaning woman in extremely straightened conditions, it is my understanding that she was buried in a pauper's cemetery. Alice Walker worked to set things to rights for Hurston posthumously, promoting her work and have her buried in a place more suited to her stature.
