What Zora Neale Hurston had to say about race almost 100 years ago is still strikingly relevant. Both as a fiction-writer and a trained ethnographer, she tackled head-on the injustices of her day. The CSULB Library invites you to join Hurston's niece, sociologist Lucy Anne Hurston, as she takes up this important conversation. Using her aunt’s writings as a lens, Hurston will examine the complex dynamics that perpetuate racial inequality and discrimination in American society today. How do we move past our own history? To improve the lived experience of race for individuals, Hurston argues, we need to focus our fight on the racism of structures and systems that keep us bound.
