Ben Raines on "Tavis Smiley"

Tavis Smiley

Ben Raines - Award-winning environmental journalist and filmmaker. A longtime newspaper reporter, Raines has won more than two dozen awards for his coverage of environmental issues and natural wonders in Alabama and on the Gulf Coast, and coauthored several peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals. A week before the film “The Woman King” released, we had him on our program discussing his book “The Last Slave Ship” (which chronicles the Clotilda – the last slave ship to bring slaves to America). During the convo, he mentioned that the kingdom of Dahomey were key contributors to the slave trade and prophetically pondered whether or not the Woman King would be rooted in historical accuracy. He returns today to join Tavis and unpack the true history on today’s show.

Ben Raines, "The Last Slave Ship"

Q&A

The last slave ship carrying captives from Africa to America arrived in Alabama in 1860, more than fifty years after the transatlantic slave trade was outlawed in the United States. The 110 slaves aboard the ship were brought to U.S. shores as the result of a bet made by a wealthy Alabama slaveholder who bragged that he could circumvent the prohibition. To cover his tracks he burned and scuttled the ship, named Clotilda, in a swamp just north of Mobile, where it remained until it was discovered by reporter Ben Raines in 2019. Mr. Raines tells the story of Clotilda and its descendants in his book "The Last Slave Ship."       Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
