MOBILE, Ala. — Like nearly everyone who grew up in Africatown, Felice Harris had heard the origin story of her little Alabama neighborhood, passed around from relative to relative and house to house.

It was the story of a group of West Africans carried to Alabama on the last slave ship to reach the United States. After the Civil War, they established and governed a thriving community of their own.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ms. Harris, a retired kindergarten teacher, knew that the story of the ship and its human cargo was well documented by historians, and she told it to her students each year. But she occasionally wondered how much myth had seeped into the history — because the ship, which was said to have been burned and sunk in the waters nearby, had never been found.

  1. The New York Times charges a subscription to see the crap they distribute, so I’d rather not continue reading this article. If the “Last Slave Ship” does exist, it will becom a monument and another reminder to continue “The Struggle,” with renewed vigor, hate white men even more and continue tearing down Civil War statues.
