Sometimes my timing is just right. In doing my normal Web snooping, I discovered that the Zora Neale Hurston Festival, held in her hometown of Eatonville, Fla., is starting today.
By the way, Eatonville was the first all-Black township incorporated in the United States in 1887.
Hurston is considered a seminal figure in African-American feminist and literary circles. The festival runs through Jan. 30. Check out: http://zorafestival.com/
Now I have a New Year’s resolution: To make it to the 2012 festival.
