Summary:

Le 28 juin 1839, l' Amistad faisait voile depuis La Havane avec à son bord une cargaison d'esclaves. Au cours de cette nuit sans lune, les captifs africains se soulevèrent, tuèrent le capitaine et prirent le contrôle du navire. Alors qu'ils essayaient d'atteindre un port sûr, leur navire fut arrêté par la Marine des États-Unis et les rebelles furent incarcérés dans une prison du Connecticut. Leur bataille juridique pour recouvrer la liberté remonta jusqu'à la Cour Suprême, où leur cas fut défendu par l'ancien président des États-Unis, John Quincy Adams. Le jugement fit date. Les insurgés furent libérés et purent rentrer en Afrique. Si cette rébellion est l'un des épisodes les plus connus de l'histoire de l'esclavage américain, elle est avant tout célébrée comme le triomphe du système légal américain et comme la victoire des abolitionnistes. En racontant cette aventure du point de vue des rebelles eux-mêmes, Marcus Rediker leur redonne une voix et un destin. Il retrace les trajectoires qui jetèrent dans les chaînes de l'esclavage ces hommes capturés en Sierra Leone, en pays mendé. La plupart d'entre eux parlaient plus d'une langue ; plusieurs étaient des guerriers ; beaucoup étaient membre d'une société secrète, le Poro. Tous disposaient de ressources et étaient capables de nouer de solides relations au-delà de leur cercle familial. C'étaient déjà des hommes habitués à l'action collective. Leur histoire nous est ici contée pour la première fois. Traduit de l'anglais (États-Unis) par Aurélien Blanchard. Marcus Rediker est professeur distingué d'histoire atlantique à l'université de Pittsburg. Historien, écrivain et militant des droits de l'homme, il est spécialiste de l'histoire maritime et notamment de l'Atlantique. Il a publié neuf livres, parmi lesquels À bord du négrier. Une histoire atlantique de la traite (Seuil, 2013).

Summary:

En 1839, cinquante-trois esclaves capturés en Sierra Leone et convoyés à bord d'une goélette espagnole, l'Amistad, se mutinent au large de Cuba. Ils tuent le capitaine et errent pendant deux mois dans les Caraïbes avant d'échouer à Long Island. Les mutins sont emprisonnés à New Haven (Connecticut), sous l'inculpation de meurtre et de piraterie, et font l'objet de deux procès retentissants. Contre toute attente, le verdict des tribunaux tourne à leur avantage - et à celui des abolitionnistes qui les soutiennent. Le gouvernement fait appel et porte l'affaire devant la Cour suprême. John Quincy Adams, ancien président des Etats-Unis d'Amérique, se joint aux avocats de la défense et donne au procès sa pleine dimension politique. Bernard Vincent a pu consulter aux Etats-Unis nombre de documents d'époque. Il retrace de façon détaillée l'épopée de Joseph Cinqué et de ses compagnons, couronnée par une victoire, la première de l'histoire américaine, contre l'esclavagisme et la ségrégation raciale. Prélude mouvementé à la guerre de Sécession, l'histoire de l'Amistad a inspiré à Steven Spielberg un film avec Matthew McConaughey, Morgan Freeman et Anthony Hopkins.

Summary:

From journalism and lectures to drama, visual art, and the Spielberg film, this study ranges across the varied cultural reactions--in America and Sierra Leone--engendered by the 1839 Amistad slave ship revolt. Iyunolu Folayan Osagie is a native of Sierra Leone, from where the Amistad's cargo of slaves originated. She digs deeply into the Amistad story to show the historical and contemporary relevance of the incident and its subsequent trials. At the same time, she shows how the incident has contributed to the construction of national and cultural identity both in Africa and the African diasporo in America--though in intriguingly different ways. This pioneering work of comparative African and American cultural criticism shows how creative arts have both confirmed and fostered the significance of the Amistad revolt in contemporary racial discourse and in the collective memories of both countries.

Summary:

On June 28, 1839, the Spanish slave schooner Amistad set sail from Havana on a routine delivery of human cargo. On a moonless night, after four days at sea, the captive Africans rose up, killed the captain, and seized control of the ship. They attempted to sail to a safe port, but were captured by the U.S. Navy and thrown into jail in Connecticut. Their legal battle for freedom eventually made its way to the Supreme Court, where their cause was argued by former president John Quincy Adams. In a landmark ruling, they were freed and eventually returned to Africa. The rebellion became one of the best-known events in the history of American slavery, celebrated as a triumph of the legal system in films and books, all reflecting the elite perspective of the judges, politicians, and abolitionists involved in the case. In this powerful and highly original account, Marcus Rediker reclaims the rebellion for its true proponents: the African rebels who risked death to stake a claim for freedom. Using newly discovered evidence, Rediker reframes the story to show how a small group of courageous men fought and won an epic battle against Spanish and American slaveholders and their governments. He reaches back to Africa to find the rebels’ roots, narrates their cataclysmic transatlantic journey, and unfolds a prison story of great drama and emotion. Featuring vividly drawn portraits of the Africans, their captors, and their abolitionist allies, he shows how the rebels captured the popular imagination and helped to inspire and build a movement that was part of a grand global struggle between slavery and freedom. The actions aboard the Amistad that July night and in the days and months that followed were pivotal events in American and Atlantic history, but not for the reasons we have always thought. The successful Amistad rebellion changed the very nature of the struggle against slavery. As a handful of self-emancipated Africans steered their own course to freedom, they opened a way for millions to follow. This stunning book honors their achievement.

Summary:

THE GRIPPING NOVEL BASED ON A TRUE STORY OF SLAVERY In 1839, fifty-three African slaves staged a bloody mutiny on board the Amistad, a Spanish slave ship from Cuba. Their success was short-lived as the slaver was intercepted by the American navy and towed to Connecticut where the slaves were held for deportation. But instead of sending them back to Cuba, the fledging Abolitionist movement forced a series of trials, culminating in their defence in the Supreme Court by former President John Quincy Adams. This powerful dramatisation of one of America’s first battles for civil rights, brings flesh, bone and emotions to what has been little more than a footnote in history. Torn from their homes, sold into slavery and faced with a terrible future, this moving novel evokes the fight, courage and hope of a determined people to be free.

Summary:

The lives of six African children, ages nine to sixteen, were forever altered by the revolt aboard the Cuban schooner La Amistad in 1839. Like their adult companions, all were captured in Africa and illegally sold as slaves. In this fascinating revisionist history, Benjamin N. Lawrance reconstructs six entwined stories and brings them to the forefront of the Amistad conflict. Through eyewitness testimonies, court records, and the children’s own letters, Lawrance recounts how their lives were inextricably interwoven by the historic drama, and casts new light on illegal nineteenth-century transatlantic slave smuggling.

Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,3, Ruhr-University of Bochum (Englisches Seminar), course: Playing in the Dark, language: English, abstract: In this research paper I deal with the representation of the African Americans in Spielberg's film Amistad, that has bee issued in 1997. I chose this film because it deals with a very important case in American and African American history. The verdict of the Supreme Court had a great impact on the abolitionist movement and therefore on American history. Although the trial was not on the issue of slavery but of cargo, in the head of the people it soon became the issue of slavery, slaves and abolition of slavery. The Amistad case did not only become known in the near vicinity of the New Haven jail where the Africans were being held in prison. The news of the captured Amistad Africans spread like fire and U.S. newspapers same as international newspapers featured them on the title pages. In the following chapters I will go deeper into the general representation of the Africans in the film, the preparations to the film Amistad, and the differences between the film and actual history. Doing that, I will also compare the representation of the slaves, respectively the Africans, in Amistad to the representation of the slaves in Birth of a Nation. I will add this issue in different chapters when I think it is appropriate, and in one chapter I will specifically deal with the main differences. Natalie Davis calls Amistad a 'feature film' because those kind of films are often described as inventory and with no connection to the experiences that have been real and to the historical past (5). In how far this really applies to Amistad and how the Africans/African Americans are represented in the film I will explore in this research paper. In order to answer these questions I studied the film and secondary material on the film and the general issue of Slaves on Screen,
