The Legacy of Zora Neale Hurston as a Cultural Preservationist
March 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join the Orange County Regional History Center as they welcome N.Y. Nathiri to lead an exploration of the life and work of Eatonville’s own Zora Neale Hurston. In addition to exploring Hurston’s literary accomplishments, Nathiri will delve into her important work as an anthropologist and activist; she’ll also highlight the community-driven effort to promote Hurston’s legacy in Central Florida. Nathiri serves as the executive director of The Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community, Inc. (P.E.C.) and is the compiler and editor of the award-winning volume, ZORA! Zora Neale Hurston: A Woman and Her Community (Sentinel Communications, 1991). Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Historical Society of Central Florida.
