The Little Town With Big Dreams


Eatonville, Florida, is built on dreams. In 1887, it was the first all-black town to be incorporated — 24 years after the Emancipation Proclamation. The town nurtured the dreams of a young Zora Neale Hurston. This year the annual Zora! Festival celebrated an even bigger dream.
