Event Description

Join us for a riveting evening as Kamau Sadiki from Diving With a Purpose explores the meaning of memory and cultural heritage in the context of the Transatlantic Era of African Enslavement by examining the wrecks of two critically important slave ships, São José Paquete de Africa and Clotilda, of the 18th and 19th centuries.


Viewers are welcome to send comments or questions to Kamau through the online Q&A and Chat boxes, and he will answer them following the lecture.


Learn more about Clotilda! Read Dr. Natalie S. Robertson's book, The Slave Ship Clotilda and the Making of AfricaTown, USA, which was featured in our Evening Lecture Series in May 2022.
