Power and Legacy of the Outcast 

They say that well behaved women rarely make history.  Join us for an exploration of the lives of two women who refused to conform to society’s expectations of them as women. We will be exploring the legacy of Mexican artist and writer, Nahui Olin and African American writer, Zora Neale Hurston to understand how these revolutionary women were highly celebrated in the 1920’s and yet ended up being ostracised and forgotten. We will discover how the legacy of these two powerful figures opened pathways for other women and how their work still has so much poignancy today.
