Zora Neale Hurston Google Logo

She was born today on January 7, 1891, which was 123 years ago. She passed away on January 28, 1960, in the same state she was born, Florida.

Wikipedia has an extensive write up on her life and achievements over here.

Of course, Google's Knowledge Graph sums it up with her awards including Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, The Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Musical, her education including Columbia University, Barnard College, Howard University, Morgan State University and more. Heck it even shows 5 of the 50 or so books she wrote, including Their Eyes Were Watching...(1937), Mules and men (1935), Dust tracks on a road (1942), Tell my horse (1938), Jonah's gourd vine (1933).

Excellent Google Doodle for today.
