The Schooner ""Clara"" or ""Clarita"" was captured at sea by British
cruisers and adjudicated at a court established at Sierra Leone 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 ""Clara"". The register was kept as a formal
record of emancipation that helped protect the individual from subsequent re-enslavement.
