Africatown CDC Scholars, Historians & Storytellers

Visit Website

The Africatown Scholars, Historians & Storytellers are educators who enlighten our patrons to the mysteries within the histories of Africatown through a lens of World African History. Africatown, Alabama is where I grew up and the site where the Clotilde ship carrying the last African captives from West Africa to America landed in 1859. Africatown is the place where these survivors settled and called home after attaining their freedom. The Africatown scholars have an intimate 5 passenger tour on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month by reservation. Tours meet at the Africatown Heritage House. Then we have a 10-stop tour filled with history, music, fellowship and memorial to the 110 captives from the Clotilde. The first tour is from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon & the second tour from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM. Finally we complete the tour at the Heritage House where we invite you to visit. Go to for reservations.
