Amistad
Composer: Anthony Davis

Librettist: Thulani Davis, Thulani Davis
Synopsis
In 1839 the slave ship Amistad was discovered drifting near the US coast. The African slaves had revolted against the Spanish crew, killing all but two members. The US Navy jailed the Africans and released their hostages. For nearly three years the courts debated their fate: Spain wished to recover their property but a group of abolitionists sued for the Africans' freedom. Former president John Quincy Adams argued their case before the Supreme Court. The testimony provided a rare glimpse into the horrors of the Middle Passage that slaves endured in crossing the Atlantic. Adams won the case; the Navy was ordered to return the Africans to Africa.
