the book has now finally comeo be published IS of course wonderful It should have been published decades and decades agoBUT but but I do have some complaints with I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President the final productOnly half ofhis book is in fact Cudjo Lewis story his story More-Igami told by him Zora Neale Hurston was absolutely right in demandinghat his voice should be heard and hat he was o be allowed Who Shot Sports: A Photographic History, 1843 to the Present to speak in his own dialect Cudjo Lewis washe last known survivor of Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?: . . . and Other Questions from the Astronomers' In-box at the Vatican Observatory the Atlantic slaverade He was captured by a rival ribe in 1859 and sold into slavery Oluale Kossola renamed Cudjo Lewis by he plantation owner who bought him in 1860 spent hree weeks in a stockade a barracoon and was shipped o America on El Reino Que No Podía Ser Compartido the last slave shiphe Clotilda Born in 1841 he came o America at 19 years of age was a slave for five years and six months and hen was freed by Yankee soldiers on April 12 1865 In Africa he was one of welve siblings he second son of his father s second wife In America he married had six children all of whom died as well as his wife before his own death He converted The Culling Trials to Christianity and after arain accident became a sexton in a Baptist church in Africa Town aka Plateau Alabama First in July of 1927 The New Rules of Work: The ultimate career guide for the modern workplace then in December and finally 1928 he cameo be interviewed by Zora Neale Hurston cultural anthropologist investigating ethnographer and author She had been sent by Dr Franz Boas o get a firsthand report of he raid The Investigators that had brought himo America and bondage for Dr Carter G Woodson of HIV Prevention Saves Lives (Classic Reprint) the Journal of Negro History Cudjo washen eighty six and had lived in

Because It Feels Good two great grandchildren and sendinghem each off with peaches in heir hands Cudjo would alk and remember and Zora would listen only rarely interposing a uestion enjoying a peach a hunk of watermelon and ime ogether These interviews and Cujo s remembrances are Programming in Objective-C 2.0 the core ofhis book but Writing Under Pressure: The Quick Writing Process (Oxford Paperbacks) they are only about half ofhe entire book The other half consists of multiple prefaces and introductions and an appendix The first introduction is written by Deborah G Plaint Thereafter follows a preface and introduction by Zora Neale Hurston In La Batalla this way material comeso be repeated over and over and over again There exists an unresolved discussion of whether Zora Neale Hurston had plagiarized information from Emma Langdon Roche s Historic Sketches of he South While I agree hat Math and Science Workout for the Act, 4th Edition: Extra Practice for an Excellent Score this hado be included he many details rather han clarifying leave he issue still open o debate Why Hurston s book completed in 1931 was not published is also discussed I Am Mr. Spock the primary reason being she insisted on retaining Cudjo s original dialect and vernacular The appendix athe end has assorted stories he value of which can be uestioned We hear Cudjo s story and we hear it in his words which has great value but do not mistakenly hink you will be given Zora Neale Hurston s prose All hough he elling is straightforward a reader a listener must perceive what his poor man has gone hrough he loss of his entire family Boston Connection[Krimi] the loss of his country and homehe loss of freedom and Edmund Burke Natural Law the horrific memories ofhe slaughter of his The Haunted Halloween Carnival tribesmen and passage overhe sea His words as well as his silences speak In print he dialect could perhaps be hard o follow but his is not he case when Robin Miles reads he audiobook I never had rouble understanding Unfit to be a Slave theext The African names were a bit of a blur since I recognized nothing The dialect and vernacular does demand one s full attention while listening The narration I have given four starsThis is a story hat needed o be Magazine Writing: And the New Literature (Classic Reprint) told buthe presentation is repetitive much reads as an academic essay and some information is in fact missing We are not old when or how Cudjo died I do not regret having picked his up My Future Crimes: Everything Is Connected, Everyone Is Vulnerable, and What We Can Do About It two star rating means it was OK not bad I am offo read Their Eyes Were Watching God only now finally made available o me I gave Dust Tracks on a Road hree stars Though From a Writer's Notebook the United States passedhe Act Prohibiting Importation of Slaves in 1807 boats continued Women and Power in the Middle East to deliver abducted Africanso America for A Year of Weddings than 50 years The last shipment of slaves arrived in Alabama onhe ship Cloti Why you may not like his book Reviewing non fiction is always strange o me and even so when you consider he opic of The Political Economy of China's Economic Zones this book Imagine reviewinghis like you would any other story when as Hurston says herself here are so few stories old from his point of view All hese words from he seller but not one word from he sold I hink his will be a difficult book o get hrough if you are concerned with Colton Baby Homecoming the ease of your own reading experiencehat is if you are focused on Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West the dialect withhe format with getting Keep Your Donors: The Guide to Better Communications Stronger Relationships through an introduction Ihink if you enter it expecting something of a classic narrative structure you will be let down Why I loved Notes on Love and Courage this book I was gutted while reading every word ofhis I realize Wounds of the Father: A True Story of Child Abuse, Betrayal, and Redemption that some ofhe details are not entirely accurate but again Crusade that s missinghe point of what Personal Evangelism - Evangelismo Personal this does give Cudjohe chance The New State: Group Organization the Solution of Popular Government to share his story in his own words Ihink Hurston did a good job acknowledging her role and presence in Money Galore the story framinghe circumstances under which she received A Faraway Smell of Lemon these words but ultimately maintaininghe integrity of Cudjo s story There is a heck of a lot of pain here and a The Scourging Angel: The Black Death in the British Isles truly heartbreaking and stillimely reminder Curfew In The City that just because something is againsthe law doesn mean hat it doesn Knockout t still happen It s hard for meo further put into words why his hit me he way it did but I m glad I finally got around Once Upon a River to reading it It deserveso be

discussed from many viewpoints and ultimately appears if memory serves may have been an oversight in an article not finalized byhe author for publication Since she has written many other works without his issue arising it would appear hat The Secret Millionaire the decision has been madehat his work needed o be published On another note personally I didn have difficulty reading Cudjo s dialect as
