Rare Slave Ship Photo Found

Dominic Casciani writes in bbcnews.com that a rare photo has been discovered depicting slaves on the deck of a ship being transported to European colonies in the Americas that still allowed slavery at that time. The photo was taken by a Royal Navy officer and amateur photographer in 1869, after his patrol ship intercepted a slave ship headed from west Africa to the Americas. This picture is one of only a few photos of slave ships known to exist anywhere in the world.

We still have to fight for freedom.
