NPR's Annie Wu reports on the discovery of ten plays by Zora Neale Hurston, the celebrated novelist who wrote "Their Eyes Were Watching God." The African-American writer is best known for her books and short stories, which capture the dialect, traditions, and history of southern blacks in the early 20th century. Hurston's plays follow in the same vein, and include songs she documented when she worked as an Anthropologist in Florida.
