The incredible true story of the last ship to carry enslaved people to America, the remarkable town its survivors founded after emancipation, and the complicated legacy their descendants carry with them to this day—by the journalist who discovered the ship’s remains.

As one reviewer wrote, this book is about a terrible crime, the survivors and the evidence its perpetrators hoped would never be found, and a “moving attempt to grapple with its legacy.”
