In 1930, Zora Neale Hurston started working with Langston Hughes on a play which they named “Mule Bone,” a comedic depiction of Negro life in those days. Guess what? The play never saw the light of the day during the playwrights’ lifetimes. Do you know why? It’s because Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes had a giant dispute over credits.
