Mobile lies on the Mobile Bay and is located on the Gulf of Mexico. It is a southern seaport with a rich, long, and complicated history to tell. The city had played a significant role when it was first established as a trading center in the 1700s, and the Port of Mobile was essential to the health of its economy. The city has long been deemed as the Gulf Coast’s cultural hub as Mobile has some art museums, and own symphony orchestra, an opera, a professional ballet company, and a large concentration of historic structures which dates back to the city’s founding. The city’s neighborhood has predominantly been known as the “Africatown,” which remained to be a dominantly black region, with a higher poverty percentage compared to its mostly white communities.
