About This Show

Their Eyes Were Watching God is the story of Janie Mae Crawford’s search for self-fulfillment. As Hurston puts it, every body “got tuh find out about livin’ fuh theyselves.” Janie’s journey spans over 20 years of African American history from the Reconstruction era to the Great Depression. We see her develop from a childbride to a liberated woman. Hurston not only tells this semi-autobiographical story through the deeply emotional storyline but uses the phonetic dialect of the American South in a linguistic style critics have likened to the Blues.
