Kim Roberts's Zora Neale Hurston Walking Tour

My DC poetry amiga Kim Roberts writes:
"The Zora Neale Hurston Walking Tour I wrote is now available on line! You can download the tour now from the Humanities Council of Washington, DC website. Go to this page and click on Zora's photo. Or--- here's the direct link to the PDF file. This tour sweeps you back to an earlier time: a time of blues and jazz, and—amid the cruel oppression of segregation-—- a time of great aspirations... The literary and arts movement we now call the Harlem Renaissance was just starting, and, despite its name, it was starting here."
