The Spanish slaving schooner La Amistad was prominent in a historically important event that went far beyond the significance of the vessel alone. On June 26, 1839, 53 black Africans, who were being transported as slaves in La Amistad from the port of Havana, revolted and took command of the vessel. Their subsequent capture and imprisonment in New London, Connecticut on August 26, 1839, foreshadowed a long series of human rights struggles in the US courts that have continued to this day.
