A two-year project to produce new curricular materials, digital humanities resources, and community engagement activities focused on the writers Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, and Albert Murray.

The proposed project seeks to advance humanities education and scholarship at Tuskegee University as our students become acquainted with literary and cultural icons Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, and Albert Murray, each of whom was connected biographically and artistically to Tuskegee Institute and Macon County, Alabama. In studying the works of these pre-eminent authors of the twentieth century, engaging with scholars knowledgeable about these authors, our students, mainly in the sciences and social sciences, will be able to understand and contextualize twenty-first century challenges in culture and society. The project, through course enhancements, workshops for teachers and faculty, and community engagement activities, also seeks to create a digital humanities site to disseminate and historical documents, teaching materials, and cultural artifacts and to preserve them for future generations.
