Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo”

0 Reviews



In 1927, Zora Neale Hurston traveled to Plateau, Alabama, to visit eight-six-year-old Cudjo Lewis, a survivor of the Clotilda, the last slaver known to have made the transatlantic journey… Barracoon employ’s Hurston’s skills as both an anthropologist and a writer, and brings to life Cudjo’s singular voice, in his vernacular, in a poignant, powerful tribute to the diremembered and the unaccounted. This profound work is an invaluable contribution to our history and culture.
