9780143123989: The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom

A unique account of the most successful slave rebellion in American history, now updated with a new epilogue from the award-winning author ofThe Slave Ship
In this powerful and highly original account, Marcus Rediker reclaims theAmistadrebellion for its true proponents: the enslaved Africans who risked death to stake a claim for freedom. Using newly discovered evidence and featuring vividly drawn portraits of the rebels, their captors, and their abolitionist allies, 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. The successfulAmistadrebellion changed the very nature of the struggle against slavery. As a handful of self-emancipated Africans steered their own course for freedom, they opened a way for millions to follow.
This edition includes a new epilogue about the author's trip to Sierra Leona to search for Lomboko, the slave-trading factory where theAmistadAfricans were incarcerated, and other relics and connections to theAmistadrebellion, especially living local memory of the uprising and the people who made it."

Product Description:

Using newly discovered evidence, Marcus Rediker reframes the story of the Amistad rebellion (1839) 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 within a grand global struggle between slavery and freedom. As a handful of self-emancipated Africans steered their own course to freedom, they opened a way for millions to follow.
