Amistad

Presented by Massachusetts Historical Society at Online/Virtual Space

Feb 10 2022
Amistad

Join the current and former Editor in Chief of the Adams Papers to discuss the 1997 film Amistad. The film explores the history of the slave ship, Amistad, which set sail from Cuba to America in 1839. During the trip the enslaved people on board held an uprising. They are then held in Connecticut, and their fate becomes subject of heated debate, eventually leading to the US Supreme Court where John Quincy Adams helps to argue for their freedom.
