The International African American Museum opened June 27 in Charleston, South Carolina, where an estimated 45% of enslaved Africans arrived in the U.S. The museum and public garden aim to share the story of the African American journey.
It also houses the Center for Family History where people can search connections between themselves and ancestors.
And in Mobile, Alabama, “Clotilda: The Exhibition” opened at the Africatown Heritage House. The exhibition focuses on descendants of the survivors of the last known slave ship to arrive in the U.S., transporting 110 captives. The wreck of the ship was recently located.
