What are you reading this #juneteenth?
. #Barracoon by the incomparable #ZoraNealeHurston tells the incredible and important true story of Cudjo Lewis—one of the last-known survivors of the Atlantic Slave trade. Based on Hurston’s in-person interviews with Lewis during the late 1920’s to early 1930’s, Barracoon masterfully illustrates the tragedy of slavery by the first hand accounts of a man forever defined by it. @amistadbooks
