About Zora Neale Hurston
Author and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston’s works largely focused on racial struggles of African-Americans in the 1900s, with herself being no exception.

Her novels include “Their Eyes Were Watching”, “Jonah’s Gourd Vine” and “Moses, Man of the Mountain”.
She was the daughter of schoolteacher Lucy Ann and Baptist preacher John Hurston. She had four older siblings and three younger ones. All three of her marriages were short-lived. She was first married to jazz musician Herbert Sheen from 1927 to 1931. Her marriages to both Albert Price and James Howell Pitts lasted for just months.
She passed away in January 1960, three weeks after her 59th birthday – she died from hypertensive heart disease. Prior to her death, she had been going through some medical and financial difficulties for some time.
