Summary:
A fictional account of the 1839 revolt of Africans aboard the slave ship Amistad and the subsequent legal case argued before the Supreme Court in 1841 by former president John Quincy Adams. Joseph Cinqué is afraid he'll never see his family again. Kidnapped by slave traders and sold at auction, he finds himself chained in the hull of a cramped ship, Amistad, with more than fifty other Africans-including a few children. Cinqué must do something. But what? In this truly epic adventure, Joseph Cinquué wants only one thing: freedom. But what he achieves, with the help of former president John Quincy Adams, is far, far greater-Joseph Cinqué makes history.
