Freedom Is Ours


—  Brooklyn White, Essence

Relationships do not absolve you of the work that you must do to fulfill yourself. They can point you towards your flame, but ultimately, you have to be invested in your growth. Such is the life of the unfettered woman. This kind of spirited person is the crux of Zora Neale Hurston’s most famous novel, “Their Eyes Were Watching God.”

At the book’s onset, the main character, Janie Crawford, is a middle-aged Black woman who has returned to her second hometown, Eatonville, Florida. She is largely misunderstood and criticized by the townspeople for her multiple marriages.
