Join us as we explore the Amistad slave ship rebellion 177 years later with a screening of the documentary Ghosts of Amistad.

The film, based on Marcus Rediker's The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom (Viking-Penguin, 2012) documents his journey to Sierra Leone in 2013 to recover historical accounts from the villages of those Africans who were forced onboard the Amistad vessel, and his encounter with the ruins of the slave trading factory Lomboko.

Following the screening, co-producers, Dr. Philip Misevich and Dr. Konrad Tuchscerer will lead a discussion. To reserve a seat, email or call (718) 206-0545 x 13.
