A ship modeled after the famous slave-trading vessel La Amistad -- on which 53 African slaves revolted in 1839 -- enters the harbor of Havana on March 25, 2010. The replica of the schooner Amistad arrived in the Cuban capital as part of a tour of ports linked to the history of slaving, organized to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its construction.
