Summary
This documentary tells the story of the revolt aboard the slave ship La Amistad, in which Africans abducted from Sierra Leone in violation of international law took over the ship on which they were held, only to end up in the American court system. They took their case all the way to the Supreme Court, with various abolitionists and former president John Quincy Adams leading the way. Based on court documents and transcripts, letters written by the Africans and their lawyers, newspaper articles, and testimony from present-day scholars
