Literary Legacies of Macon County and Tuskegee Institute Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison and Albert Murray (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Literary Legacies of Macon County and Tuskegee Institute Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison and Albert Murray
Author: Adaku Ankumah, Rhonda Collier, Zanice Bond, and Ann Gebhard
Abstract: One of the major components of the project is to create a digital humanities website on Hurston, Ellison, and Murray to be housed on the Tuskegee University Archives Repository Website (www.tuskegee.edu/ArchivesRepository). The site includes research completed during the grant period and selected materials from the following valuable library collections: Zora Neale Hurston Collection, Albert Murray Papers, which Tuskegee University recently acquired, and the Ralph Ellison Collection. We anticipate researchers, educators, and students nationally and globally, would be able to use the site for the resources available to them. A digitized unpublished essay by Ellison, for example, gives rare access to his early compositions. Other items include important, never-before-published photographs and documents, as well as teaching and research resources, some from our K-12 Workshop, are a permanent addition to this website.
