“Everyday Use” is a short story by Alice Walker, the author of The Color Purple. These are both famous African-American feminist literary works. Alice Walker credits Zora Nell Hurston, a famous African-American literary figure and scholar that spent her final years in nearby Fort Pierce, Florida. Back in the late 1970s, Alice Walker found the unkempt grave of Zora Nell Hurston and had everything totally restored to honor this forgotten African-American feminist hero and literary icon.
