Actress brings Zora to life in Yankeetown

-A A +A

Actress Phyllis McEwan portrayed the early writing days of the late author and anthropologist Zora Neal Hurston in “Zora Live”  a performance at the A.F. Knotts Library on Monday afternoon.
The author was brought to life in McEwan’s talk that was sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council.
McEwan spoke on Hurston’s early life through the publication of “Mules and Men,” “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” and “Tell My Horse.”  
She also answered questions from the audience on zombies, a topic in her book “Tell My Horse” which documented voodoo in Haiti and Jamaica, on marriage, and on separation/integration of the races.
Hurston grew up in Eatonville, a town whose folklife was the basis for “Mules and Men.”
The performance was part of a celebration of the author that included a book talk, and viewing of a documentary and movie presented by the Friends of the A.F. Knotts Library in Yankeetown.
