Alfred Pierre Disasters Visual Arts Social Studies

Alfred Pierre, a crew member on Andrea Gail's last voyage, was originally from Jamaica.  According to Sebastian Junger - in The Perfect Storm - it wasn't clear whether Pierre would actually make the trip:

Alfred Pierre - an immense, kind Jamaican from New York City - is holed up ... in one of the upstairs rooms at the Nest.  One minute he says he's going, the next minute he's not ... (Junger, The Perfect Storm, pages 30-31.)
