Descendants of some of the enslaved aboard the Clotilda – 60 Minutes/CBS News (Nov. 29, 2020)

*The Clotilda was burned and sunk in an Alabama River after bringing 110 imprisoned Africans across the Atlantic in 1860. Two years ago, its remains were discovered in the bottom of an Alabama river.

Last night on “60 Minutes” (Nov. 29), Anderson Cooper reported on the discovery of the wreck and the nearby community with descendants of the enslaved aboard the ship.

The journey of the 110 captive men, women, and children brought to Alabama on the Clotilda, is one of the best-documented slave voyages in history. The names of those enslaved Africans, and their story, has been passed down through the generations by their descendants, some of whom still live just a few miles from where the ship was found in a community called Africatown.
