The C.O.W.S. Zora Neale Hurston’s Barracoon Part 1

Friday, August 3rd 7:00PM Eastern/ 4:00PM Pacific


The Context of White Supremacy hosts our debut study session on Zora Neale Hurston’s Barracoon. Born in 1891, Hurston was a writer and anthropologist who’s cited as a legendary contributor to the Harlem Renaissance. She worked with Franz Boaz and Margaret Mead, won a Guggenheim Fellowship,  and authored an impressive array of material, including her most popular title, Their Eyes Were Watching God. Although she died in 1960, she continues to contribute new works. Earlier this year, Hurston’s Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo,” was finally released to the public. The book chronicles her 1927 interviews of Cudjo Lewis, reported to be the last living survivor of the Middle Passage. Hurston uses the unique vernacular of Mr. Lewis to authentically share his voice and experiences of being stolen and terrorized.

  1. Cudjo Lewis 1927 interview has been “EDITED” by the WS and now released after 90yrs to help strengthen the version that the WS want people to know, always putting blame on the victims. In the book Christianity in the Sudan by Giovanni Vantini, atrocities; genocides by Europeans and Arabs against the Black people in Sudan were described almost exactly as it’s allegedly being described by Cudjo, which leave me very suspicious. 2ndly when you read the article: 100 African cities destroyed by Europeans, one can never fine any evidence or sign/indication of persistent tribal war fares among the Afrikans. One finds very Advanced societies with no unemployment because everyone had something constructive to do, no jails or prisons, no homeless people, no orphanages… There were abundance for everybody. When the Arabs and the Europeans were starving people, eating rotten meat, no vegetables… what currencies were the WS using, what material wealth did they have….
