The last years of Zora Neale Hurston’s life were full of accomplishments and milestones, yet largely unexplored until now. Learn about Hurston’s reporting of the infamous murder trial of Ruby McCollum, her involvement in the design and marketing of the first “anthropologically correct” African American baby doll, her impassioned writings on King Herod, and her controversial objections to court-ordered desegregation.
