Remembering Cuba's Role in the Slave Trade

Email a Friend

A black-hulled, two-masted replica of a 19th century slave-carrying schooner called the “Amistad” will sail into Havana harbor today flying both the U.S. and Cuban flags. The ship sails as part of the United Nations commemoration of March 25th as the global Day of Remembrance for the victims of the Atlantic slave trade.

 

 

The BBC’s Cuba correspondent Michael Voss brings us more from Havana, where he'll be watching the ship pull into the harbor.
