When Alice Walker took a teaching job at Wellesley College, she suggested teaching a course made up entirely of literature by women; it had never been done before. She searched for African-American women writers whose work she could assign, and single-handedly resurrected the work of Zora Neale Hurston, whose books had long been out of print. From MPR
