The Pearl: Voyage to freedom

This video was shot during the first voyage of the Spirit of the Pearl. Several members of the Pearl Coalition's board purchased the wooden vessel in order to bring it to the District so it could become a tangible, floating learning experience for residents and visitors, telling the history of the original Pearl --the largest recorded slave escape in American history.
