Product Description:

This historically accurate documentary tells the story of the revolt aboard La Amistad, in which abducted Africans took over the slave ship on which they were held, only to end up in the American judicial system. Court documents and transcripts, news stories, letters; drawings and paintings, and character interpretations create a complete picture of the incident, which is rounded out with interviews of history scholar Cheryl Johnson-Odim, law professor Michael Higginbotham, and Clifton H. Johnson, director of Tulane University's Amistad Research Center.
