Reporters cover news. And sometimes reporters are news. Chris Pollone joins us today to share the story of a southern reporter who just made the news, and what may be a key 19th century archeological discovery. A reporter with al.com believes he has found the wreckage of what is considered to be the last ship to bring slaves to the United States. It's a terrific story with a great hook and may help tell us even more about our past. And the discovery could mean a lot to the present, as well. Many descendants from that last voyage stayed in the area. We're very excited that Chris came on to talk to us about it today.
A book about one of those last slaves is due out later this year, as well. You can read about that here.
