Zora Neale Hurston’s Lost Harlem Stories To Release in HITTING A STRAIGHT LICK

Having been born at the beginning January and passed away at the end of the same month, Zora Neale Hurston’s written work will come back to life in a new release on January 14th of 2020, titled HITTING A STRAIGHT LICK WITH A CROOKED STICK.

According to the official write up, HITTING WITH A STRAIGHT LICK will include eight lost Harlem Renaissance projects that expand Hurston’s literary scope beyond that of rural fiction.

This is one of many projects of Hurston’s that are published posthumously as many of her works went unrecognized for years while she was alive and creating masterpieces at a time when it was frowned upon for many African Americans to be educated and skilled in literature at all, including anthropology.
