The Last Slave Ship with Ben Raines

Jan 11, 2022 | The Professional Noticer

This week, Andy hosts Ben Raines — award winning environmental journalist, filmmaker, author…and Charter Captain.

Tune in to hear Ben share the incredible story of how he solved America’s last great archeological maritime mystery by locating the Clotilda – the last ship to deliver slaves to the United States – in the middle of a murky Alabama swamp.

Learn what (and who) inspired him to do it, hear the remarkable story about the town Clotilda survivors founded after emancipation, what obstacles he continues to face in his push to unearth the Clotilda, and why he calls the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, America’s Amazon.

Pre-order The Last Slave Ship: the True Story of How Clotilda Was Found, Her Descendants, and an Extraordinary Reckoning, which releases January 25, 2022.
