Every Tongue Got to Confess by Zora Neale Hurston

Every Tongue Got to Confess

Negro Folk-tales From the Gulf States

by Zora Neale Hurston

Title Details

Unabridged Edition


Every Tongue Got to Confess is the first new book by Zora Neale Hurston to be published in over 50 years. The most extensive volume of African American folklore that Hurston left behind, this collection of nearly 500 folktales gathered in the late 1920s represents a major part of her literary legacy and a rich slice of African American life in the rural South. The bittersweet and often hilarious tales reveal attitudes about faith, love, family, slavery, race, and community. Together, these folktales weave a vibrant tapestry that celebrates the black oral tradition.
