    “A profound impact on Hurston’s literary legacy.”―New York Times

    “One of the greatest writers of our time.”―Toni Morrison

    “Zora Neale Hurston’s genius has once again produced a Maestrapiece.”―Alice Walker

    A major literary event: a newly published work from the author of the American classic Their Eyes Were Watching God, with a foreword from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker, brilliantly illuminates the horror and injustices of slavery as it tells the true story of one of the last-known survivors of the Atlantic slave trade―abducted from Africa on the last “Black Cargo” ship to arrive in the United States.
