Harlem Renaissance Movement
Go on-line to the official Zora Neale Hurston website and listen to Ruby Dee’s audio version of the opening passages of Their Eyes Were Watching God (or you may read the first chapter from the book, which is available on-line or in print). Then find an excerpt from Mules and Men and read it. Finally, answer the following questions: How did Hurston’s anthropological work in the field influence her writing of Their Eyes Were Watching God? What characteristics of the Harlem Renaissance movement does Hurston display in her work? How was Hurston’s method of “protest” different from Hughes and other writers of the Harlem Renaissance?
