History from the Inside Out: The Amistad Africans and their Struggle against Slavery while in Jail, 1839-1841- Radikala nätverket
Marcus Rediker, University of Pittsburgh: "This presentation will explore the well-documented experience of thirty-six African rebels who were incarcerated in American jails after a successful uprising on the Cuban slave schooner Amistad in 1839. Against a fiery backdrop of slave rebellion around the Atlantic in the 1830s, how did African insurrectionists and American abolitionist reformers work together, inside the jail, to build a legal defense campaign, a network of support, a political alliance, and a social movement?"
