If ever youre in DC, visit Eatonville the restaurant. "Eatonville is named for Hurston’s Florida hometown and the country’s first, post-Civil War, African American incorporated town and the focal point in her most famous work, Their Eyes Were Watching God."

Pictured above is my favorite Zora Neale Hurston book, Their Eyes Were Watching God. I strongly suggest you pick it up, if you havent already. “A deeply soulful novel that comprehends love and cruelty, and separates the big people from the small of heart, without ever losing sympathy for those unfortunates who don’t know how to live properly.” —Zadie Smith

"I have been in Sorrow's kitchen and licked out all the pots. Then I have stood on the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows, with a harp and sword in my hands." Zora Neale Hurston
