Author: Zora Neale Hurston
Stars: 4
Review by: S E Sanchez

Subtitled The Story of the Last 'Black Cargo', Barracoon recounts Zora Neale Hurston's interviews with Cudjo Lewis, a man captured in Africa and enslaved in the United States. Hurston's training in Anthropology and advanced social science research lends itself to a respectful depiction of Lewis' detailed recollections of life before, during and after slavery.
