Their Eyes Were Watching God was published in 1937, long after the heyday of the Harlem Renaissance. The literature of the 1920s, a period of postwar prosperity, was marked by a sense of freedom and experimentation, but the 1930s brought the Depression and an end to the cultural openness that had allowed the Harlem Renaissance to flourish.

In the text, you will be introduced to an individual who aspires to be the town mayor.

This is something that was evident in the life of our author. Hurston’s family moved to Eatonville, Florida, the first all-black incorporated town in the United States, where, her father John Hurston served several terms as mayor.
