Cudjoe Lewis & the Rise Of Africa Town

Episode Title: The Untold Story of Cudjoe Lewis – From Clotilda to Africatown

Join me on a journey through time as we uncover the remarkable life of Cudjoe Lewis, the last survivor of the transatlantic slave trade aboard the ship Clotilda. In this episode, we delve into the origins of Cudjoe Lewis, born Oluale Kossola, in what is now Benin, West Africa. We explore the harrowing events that led to his capture and forced voyage to America, his resilience through the years of enslavement, and his pivotal role in the establishment of Africatown, Alabama.
