The Amistad AffairBook - 1970
When the Cuban schooner Amistad, stripped of sail and stained with blood, appeared off Long Island in 1839, most Americans still countenanced slavery. But were the 39 Negroes on the Amistad really slaves? Were they men with rights to freedom? Were they murderers? Answers to these questions were sought by brilliant lawyers, journalists, and politicians.
