Mutiny on the Amistad PDF
by Howard Jones
"Mutiny on the Amistad" presents the first full-scale treatment of the only instance in history where African blacks, seized by slave dealers, won their freedom and returned home. Howard Jones describes how, in 1839, fifty-three of the captives led by Joseph Cinque revolted in the Caribbean aboard the Spanish slave ship, the "Amistad." The seizure of the ship, the arrest of the Africans, and the Spanish protest against the violation of their property rights created an international controversy.
