The Bell symbolizes a lot in the AfricaTown Community . It all started on slaveships. It was known to be a bell on the ships for warning of the seas. If the seas were ruff the bell would ring none stop and the opposite for smooth seas. The story tells that the bell off the Clotilda was given to the enslaved 110 when they debarked the Clotilda. The practice was adopted by the community of ringing the bell when information needed to be disbursed.
