Why you may not like this book Reviewing non fiction is always strange to me and even so when you consider the topic of this book Imagine reviewing this like you would any other story when as Hurston says herself there are so few stories told from this point of view All these words from the seller but not one word from the sold I think this will be a difficult book to get through if you are concerned with the ease of your own reading experience that is if you are focused on the dialect with the format with getting through an introduction I think if you enter it expecting something of a classic narrative structure you will be let down Why I loved this book I was gutted while reading every word of this I realize that some of the details are not entirely accurate but again that s missing the point of what this does give Cudjo the chance to share his story in his own words I think Hurston did a good job acknowledging her role and presence in the story framing the circumstances under which she received these words but ultimately maintaining the integrity of Cudjo s story There is a heck of a lot of pain here and a truly heartbreaking and still timely reminder that just because something is against the law doesn t mean that it doesn t still happen It s hard for me to further put into words why this hit me the way it did but I m glad I finally got around to reading it It deserves to be read

read & download Barracoon Barracoon review ☆ 109 In 1927 Zora Neale Hurston went to Plateau Alabama just outside Mobile to interview eighty six year old Cudjo Lewis Of the millions of men women and children transported from Africa to America as slaves Cudjo was then the only person alive to tell the story of this integral part of the nation’s history Hurston was there to record Cudjo’s firsthand account of the raid that led to his capture and bondage fifty years after the Atlantic slav. All these words from the seller but not one word from the sold Here Zora Neale Hurston expresses why she wrote this bookI have had difficulty rating this book That the book has now finally come to be published IS of course wonderful It should have been published decades and decades agoBUT but but I do have some complaints with the final productOnly half of this book is in fact Cudjo Lewis story his story told by him Zora Neale Hurston was absolutely right in demanding that his voice should be heard and that he was to be allowed to speak in his own dialect Cudjo Lewis was the last known survivor of the Atlantic slave trade He was captured by a rival tribe in 1859 and sold into slavery Oluale Kossola renamed Cudjo Lewis by the plantation owner who bought him in 1860 spent three weeks in a stockade a barracoon and was shipped to America on the last slave ship the Clotilda Born in 1841 he came to America at 19 years of age was a slave for five years and six months and then was freed by Yankee soldiers on April 12 1865 In Africa he was one of twelve siblings the second son of his father s second wife In America he married had six children all of whom died as well as his wife before his own death He converted to Christianity and after a train accident became a sexton in a Baptist church in Africa Town aka Plateau Alabama First in July of 1927 then in December and finally 1928 he came to be interviewed by Zora Neale Hurston cultural anthropologist investigating ethnographer and author She had been sent by Dr Franz Boas to get a firsthand report of the raid that had brought him to America and bondage for Dr Carter G Woodson of the Journal of Negro History Cudjo was then eighty six and had lived in America for sixty seven years Zora let Cudjo speak in his own time and in his own way On a doorstep on a porch after sweeping the church after introducing his two great grandchildren and sending them each off with peaches in their hands Cudjo would talk and remember and Zora would listen only rarely interposing a uestion enjoying a peach a hunk of watermelon and time together These interviews and Cujo s remembrances are the core of this book but they are only about half of the entire book The other half consists of multiple prefaces and introductions and an appendix The first introduction is written by Deborah G Plaint Thereafter follows a preface and introduction by Zora Neale Hurston In this way material comes to be repeated over and over and over again There exists an unresolved discussion of whether Zora Neale Hurston had plagiarized information from Emma Langdon Roche s Historic Sketches of the South While I agree that this had to be included the many details rather than clarifying leave the issue still open to debate Why Hurston s book completed in 1931 was not published is also discussed the primary reason being she insisted on retaining Cudjo s original dialect and vernacular The appendix at the end has assorted stories the value of which can be uestioned We hear Cudjo s story and we hear it in his words which has great value but do not mistakenly think you will be given Zora Neale Hurston s prose All though the telling is straightforward a reader a listener must perceive what this poor man has gone through the loss of his entire family the loss of his country and home the loss of freedom and the horrific memories of the slaughter of his tribesmen and passage over the sea His words as well as his silences speak In print the dialect could perhaps be hard to follow but this is not the case when Robin Miles reads the audiobook I never had trouble understanding the text The African names were a bit of a blur since I recognized nothing The dialect and vernacular does demand one s full attention while listening The narration I have given four starsThis is a story that needed to be told but the presentation is repetitive much reads as an academic essay and some information is in fact missing We are not told when or how Cudjo died I do not regret having picked this up My two star rating means it was OK not bad I am off to read Their Eyes Were Watching God only now finally made available to me I gave Dust Tracks on a Road three stars

I have thought long and hard on this and I do not feel like I can give this any formal review This is a case in which I feel I would be trespassing on the author s words and by this I mean Kossulo s by superimposing any thoughts of my own There are pieces of history we will never get back For many of us this is why we write to re imagine the stories of slavery for instance because we do not have words to tell us This is a living breathing document and should be treated as such Just like the recordings of the stories of the final survivors of the Holocaust we cannot rewrite their stories We can only let their words echo inside of us and understand how they are a part of us as we are a part of that part of history we created Such are the words of Cudjo He says many times in the book that there is no way to understand his life if he doesn t tell the lives of his forefathers At one point when Zora gets frustrated with this he retorts Where is de house where de mouse is the leader 20 This is how we all must understand the unfathomable meaning of this text for us RIGHT NOW We cannot pretend to care about any of the critical social and political issues of today we can t march in the streets hold rallies go on social media start movements if we aren t willing to look into our past and see where this is all coming from It doesn t matter what you believe in what you care about or don t care about where you live or what age you are This is a piece of history we can never get back and this was a historical reality that a great deal of the world participated in or still does Everyone needs to read this book Just simply everyone needs to read this book For ourselves for our own ancestors for the world we live in today and for the world that is to comeAnd thank you Zora thank you
