Underground History: The Last Slave Ship Found
Importing slaves from overseas had long been banned when the ship Clotilda sailed to Alabama in 1860.
The ship was scuttled to hide the evidence, and stayed hidden for more than 150 years. Until May of this year, when a team from Search2o found the wreckage near Mobile, Alabama.
This month's Underground History goes underwater again, to talk about the find and what it means.
James Delgado is Senior Vice President of Search/Search2o. Chelsea Rose is our regular partner, from the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology. They visit to discuss the find and the appropriate ways to observe its discovery.
