Day 65 – Zora and Wells

IMG_3764The Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts (whew) is a small museum located in Eatonville, just north of downtown Orlando.  It currently features an exhibit that focuses on viewing the African American middle class through its own lens.  It was really cool to see all of the old photos, some ripped and tattered from age.  It was really interesting to see Orlando’s history from another perspective.

It was amazing to walk around the museum and think of all the amazingly talented people who walked through there too.  I was in awe.
