The Amistad Event Collection:

       

Book -

Nearly 160 years ago, a group of kidnapped Africans aboard the Spanish slave ship La Amistad revolted and attempted to set sail for home. Instead, after being misguided by the ship's navigator to the coast of New England, the charismatic leader Cinque and his companions found themselves embroiled in an international debate. Portraying the dignity and agony of these courageous Africans - and echoing a cry for freedom that can be still be heard today - Amistad is an unforgettable story for readers of all ages. 

HELEN KROMER has written plays, radio and television scripts, and a series of historical symphonic dramas. Three of her filmstrips have won Blue Ribbon awards at the American Film Festival. She has also garnered several ASCAP Popular Panel Awards. An Ohio State University graduate, she studied drama at Columbia University and acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Study Guide -

A four session study guide that takes your congregation well beyond the movie.  You think you know what happened.  Wait until you try this study!

If you saw Stephen Spielberg's 1997 movie, Amistad, you may think you know the story of the Amistad uprising.  Our United Church of Christ forebears played a dynamic role in the eventual return of the captives to Africa. This story continues as the UCC carries ministries of justice, peace and hospitality, witness and advocacy in our times.
