It’s estimated that between 500 and 1,000 of the 35,000 ships that transported captive Africans across the Atlantic Ocean for the slave trade, wrecked. Only five of those wrecks have been found so far. Meet Explorer Tara Roberts, a storyteller on a mission to find, document, and share the stories of these wrecks by working closely with communities and underwater archaeologists. Learn how she SCUBA dives into history and brings important memories back to the surface for us.
#ExplorerClassroom is for everyone! All events are free.
There are two ways to participate in the virtual event, as a featured class on screen or watching live on YouTube. If space is available, you may request to be a featured class during the registration process.
