Barracoon by Zora Neale Hurston: Conversation Starters

Zora Neale Hurston, the author of the American classic Their Eyes Were Watching God, tells another compelling story of the horror and injustices of slavery. Hurston opens our eyes to the story of Cudjo in Barracoon: The Story of the Last Black Cargo. Cudjo is one of the men aboard the last Black Cargo ship to arrive in the United States. He is one of the last-known survivors of the Atlantic slave trade. Huffington Post praises Zora Neale Hurston’s singular vision that led Barracoon to print. They added that her writing continue to put us at war with ourselves. The Color Purple Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker praises Zora Neale Hurston’s genius and calls Barracoon a Maestrapiece. A Brief Look Inside:
