Anyone with an interests in African-American traditions should be
familiar with Hurston's work.
There are some posts about her work on MUDCAT here: http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=81179

I just noticed the following films in the 5-DVD set PIONEERS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN CINEMA released by Kino-Lorber and BFI, and hope
someone can provide further information about their content???

. Zora Neale Hurston Fieldwork Footage (excerpt) 1928. 3 minutes.   
. Commandment Keeper Church, Beaufort South Carolina, May 1940 (excerpt) Zora Neale Hurston, 1940. 15 minutes.
. Bonus: The Films of Zora Neale Hurston (2 minutes)

Thanks!
Thomas.

Online, a tumblr blogger cites this name:

Cudjoe Kazoola Lewis
in
Filmwork Footage of Black Americans in the Rural South, 1928

The blogger states that this footage appears in the first three minutes of the video.

Online, it says that Mr. Lewis died in 1935.

Has anyone seen this footage?

Zora Neale Hurston did a lot of ethnographic/anthropological work during the WPA era. Her book Mules and Men is mentioned in that thread, along with a link to an online version of the text.

She's best known these days for her novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, that uses a lot of material about the culture of the day and the unusual yet realistic nature of the community she describes. She's also known for having more or less disappeared from view for years, ending up a housekeeper and buried in a pauper's grave until Alice Walker took an interest and revived scholarly interest in Hurston.

noticed another book which looks worthwhile, which I was not
aware of:
Carla Kaplan: ZORA NEALE HURSTON A life in Letters
Doubleday, 2002.
http://knopfdoubleday.com/book/89696/zora-neale-hurston/


also a transcription of a lecture by the author of the above collection of letters. At the end of the transcription is
a link to recommended reading extensive list of writings by and
about Hurston:

Searching Google for videos yielded a number of interesting results. Type in 'Zora Neale Hurston' and refine the search results to 'videos'.

Loved this old radio clip from 1943 where she talks about zombies.
