Anthropologist, folklorist and short story writer Zora Neale Hurston was a major contributor to 'Harlem Renaissance', which was later known as 'New Negro Movement'. The famous American novelist published around 50 essays, plays and stories covering personal experiences and incidents. She was renowned for 'Mules and Men', 'Their Eyes were Watching God' and her master work 'Every Tongue Got to Confess' (a vivid collection of folktales). Zora Neale Hurston's life was influenced by her American-African heritage. Being a daughter of former black slaves, Hurston's childhood was full of struggles. She's a self-made author, who financed her own education. After working several petty jobs, she got her biggest breakthrough from Journal of American Folklore. She had explored various forms of fine arts through projects like Mule-Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life. Her literary talents are evident from her works "The Great Day", "From Sun to Sun" and autobiography "Dust Tracks on a Road". In 1940s, she had to bear false accusations of molesting a 10-year old body. She suffered from severe strokes and underwent financial challenges till her death. Despite this, Zora's works inspired and encouraged a new generation of writers with her academic and social experience. She greatly influenced young talents like Ralph Ellison and Gayl Jones in later years. Her work was largely overlooked until writer Alice Walker brought it back to the spotlight.
