From journalism and lectures to drama, visual art, and the Spielberg film, this study ranges across the varied cultural reactions engendered by the 1839 Amistad slave ship revolt. Osagie, a native of Sierra Leone, digs deeply into the Amistad story to show the historical and contemporary relevance of the incident and its subsequent trials.
