  • ""Every Tongue Got to Confess is an extensive volume of African-American folklore that Zora Neale Hurston collected on her travels through the Gulf States in the late 1920's. The bittersweet and often hilarious tales - which range from longer narratives about God, the Devil, white folk, and mistaken identity to witty one-liners - reveal attitudes about faith, love, family, slavery, race, and community. Together, this collection of nearly 500 folktales weaves a vibrant tapestry that celebrates African American life in the rural South and represents a major part of Zora Neale Hurston's literary legacy." --From publisher description."
  • "In this book Zora Neale Hurston records the voices of ordinary people and pays tribute to the richness of Black vernacular--its crisp self-awareness, singular wit, and improvisational wordplay. These folk-tales reflect the joys and sorrows of the African-American experience, celebrate the redemptive power of storytelling, and showcase the continuous presence in America of the Africanized language that flourishes to this day."
