Kezia and I selected Mules and Men and The Sanctified Church, both by Zora Neale Hurston, out of an ongoing, deep love and interest in Black American mythology. The Sanctified Church compiles her writings on the Black church, while Mules and Men is a compilation of folk tales collected from Black southerners. Both of these texts have become a kind of bible as we feel into our Black queer spiritual life together, both as creative and romantic partners.
