I think Barracoon The Story of the Last Slave by Zora Hurston is, it’s short, (1 hr audio on YouTube) and written in order to preserve the dialect of the last slave brought over to Mobile, Alabama. Some 100 years after importing slaves was made illegal. Was unpublished for + years IIRC. Definite must read. (Or listen on YouTube like I did)
