Literary Vantage Points: Multiple Perspectives of Zora Neale Hurston

In our third installment of Literary Vantage Points, we have collected brief interviews from a number of professors to get their perspectives about various authors. In this particular feature, we asked three literary scholars—Professors Sandra Govan, Opal Moore, and Aldon Lynn Nielsen—to describe their initial impressions of author Zora Neale Hurston and discuss the legacy of her work.
The goal of these interviews is to reveal the diverse nature of African American literature. These three scholars provide very different responses about how they became acquainted with Zora Neale Hurston and the aesthetic value of her work. Please join us as we begin a new chapter of HBW history.
