Watch: Descendant (Netflix) tells the story of the Clotilda - the last known ship to smuggle stolen Africans to America
Descendant tells the story of the Clotilda - the last known ship to smuggle stolen Africans to America - the unthinkable cover-up, and the impact of that crime on generations of descendants living in Africatown. Once the past is revealed, can the future be reclaimed?
Michelle Obama Twitted: Barack and I believe that everyone has a story worth telling—and Descendant is a story that demands to be told. This film chronicles when the last known ship from Africa, the Clotilda, arrived with enslaved Africans to the United States. I hope you'll watch Descendant on Netflix.
