About the Author

Hughes and Hurston began writing Mule Bone in March 1930. They wanted to write a comedy about African American life that didn't consist of racial stereotypes. They decided to base the plot on a folktale Hurston had collected in Florida during one of her anthropological field trips. The two writers dictated their work to Louise Thompson, who typed it.
