CHICAGO – Join the American Library Association (ALA) Ethnic and Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT) as it explores historic Eatonville, Florida as part of EMIERT’s Taste of the Town series of tours. The tour will take place from noon to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 24 during the ALA's Annual Conference in Orlando (June 23-28).

Established in August 1887, Eatonville is one of the first self-governing all-black municipalities in the United States, and is the hometown of noted author Zora Neale Hurston. Eatonville is home to the Zora Neale Hurston Museum of Fine Arts, and hosts the Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities every winter. This year is the 125th Anniversary of her birth on January 7, 1891.

The tour will depart at noon from the Orange County Convention Center and will include a tour of the town’s historic sites. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit the St. Lawrence African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church Congregation, which predates the Town’s Incorporation;  the Zora Neale Hurston™ National Museum of Fine Arts -- named in her honor;  the Exhibition: The Journeys Project in Eatonville by Artist Lynne Marshall-Linnemeier; and the historic wall mural at Eatonville Town Hall.

Registration for the tour is $40 and includes a box lunch. Wear comfortable clothing and do not forget your umbrella! Payment must be made in advance and can be added to your already existing ALA Annual Conference Registration. For more information, please visit www.alaannual.org. Event code: EMI1.

For more information, please contact Tess Tobin at ttobin@citytech.cuny.edu or Leslie Campbell Hime at lesliecampb@gmail.com This tour has been coordinated through The Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community Inc. (P.E.C).  www.preserveeatonville.org / www.historicleatonville.org
