Thanks for the tip on the film.
I did a 'GOOGLE' search and found the following:
ZORA IS MY NAME.
Ruby Dee produced this dramatization of the words and folk tales of Zora Neale Hurston. Semi-autobiographical in nature, Hurston's works were some of the most liberating writing of the Harlem Renaissance. She used the story telling passion that surrounded her in her childhood in Florida -- and that she learned while traveling through the South gathering black folk tales in the 1930s and wrought spirited, sensual tales. Dee and her very fine cast do justice to the spirit and letter of Hurston's words. Its a stage bound production but is rich in flavor and emotionally satisfying. With: Louis Gossett, Jr., Flip Wilson, Oscar Brown, Jr., Paula Kelly, Roger Mosley, Beah Richards, Count Stovall, and Lynn Whitfield.
