The Best Story I’ve Heard Today with broadcast journalist Chris Pollone
Jan 24th, 2018 by beststory
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.
