Slavery was long an established institution in Cuba, providing labor to support the sugar cane plantations. Cuba stopped officially participating in the slave trade in 1867 but the institution of slavery was not abolished on the island until October 7, 1886. These laws and regulations against slavery which started appearing as early as 1870, helped pave the way for total abolition. Berkeley, L.A. County Law Library and U. of Miami in OCLC. Item #57526
