The Power of Voice Through Books (Public Speaking, Gender, Blog, tags for Women)– Zora Neale Hurston Our local UN Women Chapter has been celebrating women’s voices in film at the TWE film festival for the past 20 years – but what about books? The power of women’s voices through the written word? This year we’ve taken it on, and what could be better than Zora Neale Hurston to start us off? For International Women’s Day on March 8th, we invited Dr. Deborah G. Plant to talk about the life and works of Zora Neale Hurston. Plant is an African American literature and Africana Studies scholar, literary critic, and editor of Barracoon: The Last “Black Cargo” by Hurston.
