Extra Dose of Black History: Hurston video bio

Hat tip to prometheus6. Cross-posting because the link below is time-sensitive (good until the end of the month).

Blurb from the site:

"Zora Neale Hurston, path-breaking novelist, pioneering anthropologist and one of the first black women to enter the American literary canon (Their Eyes Were Watching God), established the African American vernacular as one of the most vital, inventive voices in American literature. This definitive film biography, eighteen years in the making, portrays Zora in all her complexity: gifted, flamboyant, and controversial but always fiercely original."
