Barracoon: The Story of the Last. By Zora Neale Hurston.

Quote

MOBILE, Alabama, lies at the raggedy end of the American mainland, amid a boggy landscape of swamp and forest where five rivers empty into the sea. The air smells green, and secrets lurk in the creeks, rills and tree-shrouded coves. Buried somewhere in the muck of Mobile Bay is the burned wreck of the Clotilda—the last ship known to have brought slaves from Africa to America.

 

One of those slaves was named Kossula in Africa, but became Cudjo Lewis in Alabama. Over three months in late 1927 and early 1928 he was interviewed at his home by Zora Neale Hurston, who later won acclaim as a novelist. Cudjo was among the last survivors of the Clotilda, and thus among the last living Americans to have been transported as a slave. Hurston described their encounters and his life in a book, “Barracoon”. The name refers to the barracks in which captives were kept before their buyers took possession of them.

“Barracoon” is now being published for the first time. How it came to languish for decades in an archive, and its place in Hurston’s embattled writing career, are interesting stories in themselves. Because of its extraordinary circumstances, Cudjo’s own story is highly unusual among accounts of American slavery. It is also heartbreaking.

An interesting book and an invaluable contribution to history and culture but not a comfortable read.
