Are You a Fan of Zora Neale Hurston?

Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men.

Now, women forget all those things they don't want to remember, and remember everything they don't want to forget. The dream is the truth. Then they act and do things accordingly.
--opening lines of THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD

If you are a Hurstonite, head over to the recently launched official web site.

Links will allow you to hear Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis read from Hurston's works.
"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
