I’m currently reading PASSIONATE MINDS: WOMEN REWRITING THE WORLD by Claudia Roth Pierpont. The chapter I just finished is on Zora Neale Hurston, my imaginary anthropologist/author girlfriend. She was a bemusing, heroic, complicated woman who came to racial hatred second-hand until she was grown, having been born and raised (okay, I know it’s “born and reared”, but “born and raised” is how I grew up saying it)…. I lost my place. Oh, yeah — Her home town was founded and entirely populated by Black people.
She said it astounded her when people discriminated against her.
“How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company?”
