A Long Road to FreedomBook - 1998
In 1839, the slave ship "Amistad" set sail on a short voyage from one end of Cuba to the other. During the journey, the illegally enslaved Africans revolted and seized control of the ship. Hoping to sail back to Africa, the passengers wound up in America where they were put on trial. In "The Amistad Affair", Newbery Honor author Walter Dean Myers explores the issues surrounding the imprisonment and trial of the "Amistad" captives.
