Centering the life and times of Zora Neal Hurston and the music of Lauryn Hill, this chapter begins to develop the Black Map. The chapter questions the currency of existing map, revealing the consequences of the white logics and practices upon which our maps are based. Also questioning the assumptions within the Great Migration narrative, this chapter offers the idea of a “long migration” to better characterize the constant movement by black people in their quest for freedom. The authors illustrate the radical potential of imagining and creating maps that better reflect the lives and experiences of people of color.

Keywords:   Zora Neal Hurston, Eatonville, The Black Map, long migration, the Great Migration, critical black geography, Lauryn Hill
