Some people ask who were there African American passengers on the Titanic?

There was only one black man on the Titanic but he was not African American.

He was Haitian.

Read the story of Joseph Philippe Lemercier Laroche, his wife and two daughters.

The only interracial family on RMS Titanic.

Because of racism in France, Lemercier Laroche couldn't find work as an engineer.

That's why he was onboard RMS Titanic.

he was returning home to Haiti with his family.

They traveled as a second-class passengers.
