@MHarrisPerry I'm excited for this dialogue. You had me when you opened up with Janie and Zora. #SisterCitizen
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
#SisterCitizen opens with an excerpt from Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God. It's the story of the hurricane.

I use Hurston's hurricane in Eyes Were Watching God to open discussion of black women in context of Katrina. #SisterCitizen

Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
Yes, I also cite "Dust Tracks on a Road" RT @katellington: Q Were other works fr Hurston's work that inspired your writing? #SisterCitizen
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
Yes & No (cont) RT @PoliticlSvvyPhD Do you think this book connects with various women not only black women? #SisterCitizen
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
#SisterCitizen is specifically about black women in US, but ours is a compelling, larger, human experience from which all can learn.
Melissa Harris-Perry @MHarrisPerry
Toni Morrison, whom I also cite at length in #SisterCitizen, insists that we learn universal truths from specific human stories.
Kat Ellington @katellington
@MHarrisPerry Hurston faced challenges fr within ourcommunty, yet remained committed her own storytelling of black life. #SisterCitizen
