On behalf of the Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community, Inc. (P.E.C.), the nonprofit (501[c]3) historic preservation and cultural arts organization which presents the annual Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities (ZORA! Festival), I bring Salutations and a Special Invitation to join the “Company of ‘ZoraPhiles’ ” on our 2nd Conference Cruise, April 7 -14, 2019. In April 2016, 77 of us representing 15 states celebrated the 125th year of Zora Neale Hurston’s birth by “Tracing the Her Caribbean Footprints,” traveling, among other places, to Haiti and Jamaica. Simply stated, it was a fantastic conference cruise. Among our scholar presenters was the inimitable, Dr. Ruthe T. Sheffey, Professor Emerita, Morgan State University. Now, we are preparing to cruise again — This time in 2019 to mark the 30th Anniversary of the ZORA! Festival. Do plan to come with us. You will have a wonderful experience — Guaranteed!
