Capture of a Slaver Near Cuba

More than 3.3 million Africans were transported between 1801 and 1867, the vast majority to Brazil and Cuba. Half came from West Central Africa, and more than 40 percent were originally from the Bights of Benin and Biafra, and Southeast Africa (Mozambique and Madagascar). The slave trade to Cuba ended in 1867. It was the last country to which Africans were deported.
