Published in 1992/93 by the New Press. An anthology of letters dated the first decade of the 20th Century written to newspapers, scholarly pieces, works of creative nonfiction and fiction, and photographs, make this an important introductory reader on out-migration of American Blacks from the South in the first half of the 20th Century.

Speak, So You Can Speak Again: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston by Dr. Lucy Hurston. The text of this illustrated book, beautifully packaged –with reproductions of art, hand-writing and an audio recording–was written by me, work with Dr. Hurtson and the Zora Neale Hurston Estate who are the official authors.
