In 1839, a group of enslaved Africans bound for Cuba mutinied on their ship, the AMISTAD. They attempted to sail back to Africa, but ended up in the waters off New York, where they were recaptured and put on trial. Author Melissa Eisen Azarian explores the history behind the case, the trial, and the movie, AMISTAD, based on their fight for freedom. Illustrated with paintings from the period and stills from the movie.
