Welcome

This is a blog about the prestigious, writer of the Harlem renaissance Nora Zeale Hurton's novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. This originally considered offensive and stereotypical novel, is a southern love story tied into a great adventure to fulfill a dream. Written through the view of the fierce, independent Janie Crawford, this story is about the breakthrough from sorrow and intimidation to confident blithe in the time of intense prejudice and discrimination against the black slave population. I invite you to tune in and listen as Janie depicts her wild and radical adventure.
