Jump at the Sun: Zora Neale Hurston and Her Eatonville Roots

To support: Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers on the life and work of Zora Neale Hurston.

Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers on the life and work of Zora Neale Hurston. Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960), renowned for both her fiction writing and her scholarly research as a collector of African-American folklore, spent much of her childhood in the small town of Eatonville, Florida, which was founded by freed slaves in 1886. During this workshop, participants explore Hurston's Eatonville roots, her folkloric and literary endeavors, her participation in the Harlem Renaissance, and her final years in Fort Pierce, Florida. Historian Julian Chambliss (Rollins College); literary scholars Houston A. Baker (Vanderbilt University), Jill Jones (Rollins College), and Maurice O'Sullivan (Rollins College); preservationist N.Y. Nathiri (Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community); Chautauqua interpreter Phyllis McEwen; and Hurston biographer Valerie Boyd (University of Georgia) join lead scholar Heather Russell (Florida International University) in this consideration of Hurston and her milieu. Participants take walking tours of Eatonville and Fort Pierce, examine Hurston documents at the Rollins College archive, view an exhibit on Hurston and Eatonville at the Maitland Art Center, explore her folklore writings collected on the Library of Congress's American Memory site, work on curriculum projects, and watch a theatrical presentation of songs and stories that the author collected in central Florida. Readings include, among other works and resources, Hurston's masterwork, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and other writings; Valerie Boyd, Wrapped in Rainbows: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston; and Robert Hemenway, Zora Neale Hurston: A Literary Biography.

Rollins College Archives and Special Collections Preservation Assessment and Planning

To support: An assessment of the environment and materials in the Department of Archives and Special Collections; the creation of a long-range preservation plan with established priorities; and the purchase of equipment and materials as well as professional development programs as recommended by the consultant. The collection includes rare books, manuscripts and autographs from the 17th century to the present; the Fred Rogers Collection (including Mister Rogers's trademark sweater and sneakers); collections of Florida authors such as Zora Neale Hurston, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Rex E. Beach; and the College archives.

Rollins College is requesting an NEH grant of $6,000 to support: 1) the contracting of a preservation consultant to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the conditions, policies, and practices of Rollins' Department of Archives and Special Collections; and 2) the development of a long range preservation plan based on the consultant's recommendations, for specific actions to ensure the preservation of the College's rare collections for the general public and generations of students, faculty, and other scholars.
