In 1839, there was a rebellion on the slave ship Amistad."(School Library Journal) While trying to sail the ship home, the Africans accidentally ended up in New York. They were later imprisoned and put on trial for murder. In a bloody struggle, the African captives aboard rebelled against their kidnappers and declared mutiny."With characteristic scholarship, clarity, insight, and compassion, Myers presents readers with the facts too as the moral and historical significance of the Amistad episode. Award-winning author Walter Dean Myers's probing look at this triumph over indignity and injustice shows the events' effect on the country America has become.
