Barracoon

(2010)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Abducted from Africa, sold in America.

The compelling true story of one of the last survivors of the Atlantic Slave Trade, Barracoon recounts one man's fight for freedom. After being illegally smuggled as 'Black Cargo' 50 years after the abolition of slavery, Cudjo Lewis spent nearly six years in captivity before being finally emancipated.

Cudjo casts light on the circumstances of his capture and his detention in a barracoon before embarking on his journey through the Middle Passage, to his arrival in the Unites States on the Alabama River.

This never-before-published work, from the best-selling American author of Their Eyes Are Watching God, brilliantly illuminates the tragedy of slavery and one life forever defined by it.
