On Saturday, March 19, 2016, 12:00 Noon – 3:30 PM, our organization, in collaboration with the Enzian Theatre, will be screening and panel discussion on You Belong to Me: Sex, Race and Murder in the South. As March is Women’s History Month and Zora Neale Hurston covered the Ruby McCollum murder trial for The Pittsburgh Courier, we thought this would be an excellent complement to our year-long celebration of her 125th birthday celebration. Also invited to serve on the panel are Dr. Lisa Barkley from the UCF College of Medicine and Prof. Deloso at the FAMU Law School.
In 2004, ZORA! Festival added, what was to become, and “instant programming winner.” HATitude, a luncheon event, celebrating Zora Neale Hurston’s penchant for wearing hats, provides an opportunity for the participants to be “the stars.” A fun program, HATitude is a fast-spaced, 3-hour event, where the focus is on food, fashion, and having a good time. Whether you are 5 or 95, a woman or a man, if you want to come to HATitude, you need to know, “If you are not wearing a hat, you can’t get in!”
