Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts


The Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts celebrates Zora Neale Hurston, one of the most significant experts of African American Culture of the South. Hurston was a writer, a folklorist, and anthropologist. The museum is located in Eatonville, literally right on the North Orlando border. Eatonville is known as the oldest African American Community in the country, both founded, governed, and settled by African Americans in 1887. While not a native of the Orlando area, Hurston ultimately moved and settled in the Eatonville area. Not only is Hurston is a huge deal in African American culture, she’s a huge deal in Orlando culture because Orlando simply has never been home to many famous people.
