Do you know the name of the first slave ship filled with African slaves to reach the shores of "America"?

That ship was named "The Good Ship Jesus"!

What has come to be referred to as "The Good Ship Jesus" was in fact the "Jesus of Lubeck," a 700-ton ship purchased by King Henry VIII from the Hanseatic League, a merchant alliance between the cities of Hamburg and Lubeck in Germany. Twenty years after its purchase the ship, in disrepair, was leant to Sir John Hawkins by Queen Elizabeth.

Come and join Antoine Mwalimu Bean and Francis Aka-eri for more enlightening conversation.
