Zora Neale Hurston Plays presents manuscripts of 10 plays written by author, anthropologist, and folklorist Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960). The plays had been deposited in the U.S. Copyright Office between 1925 and 1944 but were unpublished and unproduced until they were rediscovered in the Copyright Deposit Drama Collection in 1997. The plays reflect Hurston's life experience, travels, research, and study of folklore in the African-American South.
