Writing After Zora @ Miami Dade Public Library
Set in Florida, Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God is the story of Janie Mae Crawford, who tries to break free from the roles assigned to the women of her generation and prove her worth. Considered the first African-American feminist novel, it set the tone for a new generation of women writers in search of their black identity in the 1960s.
