Rate this:
In the 1830s, a group of newly captured Africans, under the leadership of Joseph Cinque, revolted aboard a slave ship called the Amistad. After the bloody rebellion, the Africans were captured and brought to trial for mutiny. Richard Worth traces the history of the case that caused an international controversy as it called into question whether illegally imported Africans were slaves or free men who had a right to kill for their freedom.
