Another search for the Clotilda slave ship is underway.

Tuesday night, the Alabama Historical Commission is held a community meeting to discuss the specifics.

The second search actually started this past Sunday, which happened to be the 158th anniversary of the arrival of America's last slave ship to Africatown.

A team of divers, historians, and archaeologists are in town until Friday for the search.

You'll remember earlier this year, the ruins of a ship were found in the Mobile-Tensaw delta, but its confirmed they did not belong to the Clotilda.
