2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

Shivon Pearl Love  will attend the Collegium for African American Research’s 13th Biennial Conference, titled With Harp and Sword: Navigating and Resisting the Second Nadir in Orlando, FL in late January 2019. The conference is being held in conjunction with Eatonville, Florida’s Zora! Festival celebrating Zora Neale Hurston’s cultural and literary contributions to her hometown and abroad. Shivon’s work with collaborator Khaliah Pitts on Our Mothers’ Kitchens centers the work of four African American women writers and their foodways, of which Hurston is one. Attending the conference would serve as an opportunity to learn from historians, scholars, educators, and writers who have immersed themselves in Hurston’s work, including the only living member of OMK’s focus, Alice Walker, who will herself be in attendance at this conference.
