Today’s Birthday: Zora Neale Hurston

It's January 7, and African-American author Zora Neale Hurston was born on this date in 1891.  She is perhaps best-known for Their Eyes Were Watching God, but she wrote more than 50 published works in total.  In the English and literature courses required to earn an online high school diploma or correspondence high school diploma from us, we try to expose students to works by a variety of authors.  The authors have different ethnic backgrounds and life experiences which shape their writing.  In turn, our students become more well-rounded individuals.  We cannot guarantee students will enjoy everything they read, but we hope they take something out of everything they read.  As always, we have provisions in places if students cannot read a certain piece of literature because of religious reasons.  We are happy to include these works of literature in our accredited high school courses and middle school courses.  If you're happy about it too, we invite you to enroll today!
