We read about it in our history books... the last slave ship, which brought slaves to what's now known as Africatown.
We knew it as the Clotilde, but AL.com reporter Ben Raines says it's actually the Clotilda... and he thinks he's found it.
This is fascinating, seeing history unfold in front of our eyes... and each one of these articles adds a different piece to the story... you'll want to read them all. I did!
I know some people are more interested in pop culture than history, so there's this.
Questlove, of The Roots, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, had his roots traced back to the Clotilda last month, on the PBS show "Finding Your Roots"
