If you're interested in more context around this ship and one of the slaves it brought to the US, I highly recommend "the story of the last slave" written by Zora Neale Hurston in the 1930s, and only recently published (original title: the story of the last black cargo). It's essentially a long interview with one of the people who were on the ship.

More background on the book is available in this article, including why it was only now published:
