Amistad: The Slave Uprising Aboard the Spanish Schooner - by Helen Kromer

Nearly 160 years ago, a group of kidnapped Africans aboard the Spanish slave ship La Amistad revolted and attempted to set sail for home. Instead, after being misguided by the ship's navigator to the coast of New England, the charismatic leader Cinque and his companions found themselves embroiled in an international debate. Portraying the dignity and agony of these courageous Africans - and echoing a cry for freedom that can still be heard today - Amistad is an unforgettable story for readers of all ages.
