Zora Neale Hurston's Grave
graphite on paper
35" x 75"

An invasive Brazilian Pepper tree from the grave of the Southern writer in Fort Pierce, Florida. She died there in 1960 in almost total anonymity, though she had been a great figure of the Harlem Renaissance, as well as an anthropologist and folklorist.
