Zora Neale Hurston, 1940, from The New Yorker’s gallery of Carl van Vechten’s Harlem photos.

'Hurston died a little more than a year after penning the letter, never finishing the book she had been working on, but the writer’s personal tragedy continued for much longer after her own life ended. Up until 1973, thirteen years after her death, Hurston’s body lay in an unmarked grave somewhere in Fort Pierce, Florida.'
