History Book Discussion with John Harris

Barracoon by Zora Neale Hurston

Join the discussion of "Barracoon" by Zora Neale Hurston.  This book is based on her interviews in 1927 with Cudjo Lewis who was the last living survivor of the Middle Passage, where purchased or kidnapped Africans were shipped to the "New World" as part of the Atlantic slave trade.  The manuscript failed to find a publisher at the time, and remained unpublished until this year.

Copies of the book are available through InfoSoup.org and a downloadable Audiobook copy is available with Door County Library's Hoopla app.
