Discovered in 2019 in a remote arm of Alabama’s Mobile River, the schooner Clotilda smuggled African captives into the United States in 1860, more than 50 years after importing slaves had been outlawed. Learn how this tremendous discovery has illuminated a shameful episode in American history and impacted the slaves’ descendants—and how archaeologists used advanced technologies to find the ship. National Geographic magazine Executive Editor of Culture Debra Adams Simmons will moderate a conversation with community activist Anderson Flen, photographer Elias Williams, historian Sylviane Diouf, and National Geographic Archaeologist-in-Residence Fred Hiebert.
