Trivia-on-Book: Barracoon by Zora Neale Hurston
Take the challenge and share it with friends and family for a time of fun!

Barracoon is a true-life story telling the Transatlantic journey of the last black slave to arrive in America. A harrowing journey is taken across the Atlantic. Oluale Kossula or Cudjo Lewis, his slave name, tells his story to Zora Neale Hurston. He recalls his suffering and life aboard the ship. His story comes to life after he had been freed from slavery and established ‘Africatown’ a place of safety for his fellow freed slaves from the last ship.  The story tells how the slaves were sold by another war faring tribe into silvery, to be taken to a barracoon. This was a barracks for slaves awaiting their transportation across the Atlantic sea, to America. The conditions were deplorable and the mental and physical pain of the captives unimaginable. The book, called Barracoon, is the true story of the last ‘Black Cargo’ a group of captive Africans, and was published posthumously. It is a credit to Zora Neale Hurston who refused to back down on the style of the book.  She used the dialect of the slaves in the manner that Cudjo spoke in his interviews with her. This story captivates your attention with its authenticity and sensitivity. It is a shocking story bringing home the reality of slave trade. A practice banned fifty years before Kossula was captured. However, due to an insensitive bet, the last black cargo, was captured and boarded the ship to America. It was a journey that severely altered the lives of the men and women who were on the Clotilda, to sail from Africa to America. Tony Morrison of the New York Times acclaims the book as a ‘Best Seller’ and refers to Hurston as ‘one of the greatest writers of our time.’
