Black ǀ African American
Alabama African Americans represent blacks living in Alabama. In addition to African origins from the days of slavery and an average 25-30% white admixture, many also have strong American Indian roots, particularly among the Creek, Choctaw and Cherokee tribes. Baseball legend Hank Aaron was born in Mobile, Alabama.
The Black – Alabama population data represent DNA samples from 62 African-American individuals in the state of Alabama. For details on this population, see:
