You can get a lot of good ideas for thesis statements by visiting the "Themes" link to Hurston's story (below). 

One I can offer you, however, (and is discussed in the "Themes" page) is to consider the differences between appearance and reality.  You might want to go with something as straight-forward as "The old adage "all that glitters is not gold" is certainly true in Zora Neale Hurston's story of two characters , Missy Mae and Joe, blinded by what-seems-to be.  It will be take some time before reality takes precedence over appearance and true gold is realized to be something more intangible than tangible."
