Food & Folklore "Sweet & Sour - Exploring the Friendship of Zora Neale Hurston & Langston Hughes"
Join us at Eatonville Restaurant on Sunday, April 28th at 6:30 pm for a special edition of our Food & Folklore: Dinner Series.

Special guest, author Whit Frazier, will discuss his book "Harlem Mosaics" and share his insights in to the friendship between Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes and their subsequent falling out over the play, "Mule Bone".

"In the summer of 1927, two old friends, Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston met up in the south through pure synchronicity.

They were looking for inspiration for a work of art of their own: the first ever authentic blues opera. Over the course of the next three years, their opera would turn into a play about two old friends who fall out.

The writing of this play would also end their own friendship."
