"Amistad" and the Lessons of History.
Adjaye, Joseph K.
Journal of Black Studies, v29 n3 p455-59 Jan 1999
Discusses Spielberg's film "Amistad," a production of the dramatization of a 19th-century slave revolt and its repercussions. Focuses on the point that Africans fiercely resisted slavery rather than passively submitted to it. Urges teachers to incorporate this aspect of resistance into their teaching of the history of slavery. (MMU)
