"Over 150 documented mutinies occurred aboard slave ships between 1699 and 1845; only once, in the case of the Amistad, did slaves successfully return to Africa. Using that remarkable and anomalous incident as a focus, this program takes an in-depth look at the slave trade. ... The program weaves the developments of the Amistad case-- argued and won in the U.S. Supreme Court by former President John Quincy Adams-- into the overall fabric of slavery in America."--Container.
