📚@louismarch.to (of @zerogunviolence.movement) with Zora Neale Hurston's new, posthumously published book, "Barracoon: The Story of the Last 'Black Cargo'" (2018).
.
Hurston begins with this compelling introduction: "The African slave trade is the most dramatic chapter in the story of human existence. Therefore a great literature has grown up about it. Innumerable books and papers have been written. These are supplemented by the vast lore that has been blown by the breath of inarticulate ones across the seas and the lands of the world.
.
"Those who justified slaving on various grounds have had their say. Among these are several slave runners who have boasted of their exploits in the contraband flesh. [....]
.
"All these words from the seller, but not one word from the sold. The Kings and Captains whose words moved ships. But not one word from the cargo. [....]
.
"Of all the millions transported from Africa to the Americas, only one man is left. He is called Cudjo Lewis and is living at present at Plateau, Alabama, a suburb of Mobile. This is the story of Cudjo.
.
"I had met Cudjo Lewis for the first time in July 1927."
.
Read the rest of this landmark publication about Cudjo Lewis, "a survivor of the Clotilda, the last slaver known to have made the transatlantic journey." It is AVAILABLE NOW and sells for $31.00 at @adfrntbooklist - #ReadDifferently!
