In conjunction with BCRW’s Hurston@125 conference on October 28, celebrate In the Spirit of Zora with the Black Theater Ensemble (BTE) and the Barnard Organization of Soul Sisters (B.O.S.S)

As a tribute to Zora Neale Hurston (~1891-1960) who trail blazed representation of African American women in literature and the arts through her life and career, ‘In the Spirit of Zora’ continues Hurston’s legacy by performing her work in a contemporary setting, in collaboration with modern pieces created by members of the campus community.

From Hurston’s time at Barnard, to Brooks 7, to today, ‘In the Spirit of Zora’ portrays the experience of black students in residence at Barnard. Through poetry, dance, song, and theatre, this event explores the multifaceted narratives of students demanding and maintaining their place on campus.
