The Goleta ""Tita"" was captured at sea by British cruisers and adjudicated
at a court established at Havana under international anti-slave trade treaties. The image
is of a picture of the first page of the court’s register of ""Liberated Africans"" taken
from the ""Tita"". The register was kept as a formal record of emancipation that helped
protect the individual from subsequent re-enslavement. The image is reproduced courtesy of
the British National Archives.
