A Celebration of Zora Neale Hurston

Oct 29, 2018

All these words from the seller, but not one word from the sold. Upon the recent re-discovery of Zora Neale Hurston’s Barracoon, her never-before-published, first-person account of the Alabama man believed to be the last living person captured in Africa and brought to America on a slave ship, Dr. Deborah Plant, the editor of Barracoon, Margo Jefferson, Ibram X. Kendi and Jacqueline Woodson pay tribute to Hurston with readings from Barracoon, the author’s letters and folktale collections, and Their Eyes Were Watching God.
