Amistad the Movie

Updated on October 28, 2011

In the movie Amistad, thousand of West Africans snatched from their homes, chained, starved and beaten, somehow took control of their captors's ship but were apprehended trying to get home.

This movie stick in my mind, I try to imagine the frame of mind, of they captors, In the movie heartless John Adams refuse again to help join the fight for the rights of those innocent black men and women and children .

Sometimes we have to know a lot about our past, to have a future, even in today court system

the Black men and women is still finding it hard to get justice, here in the movie the President is up for reelection and would rather not have a civil war, twelve white guys, representing forty-four black men and women, that don't speak a word of English, well the prove speak for itself,

I was so hesitant to continue to watch this movie, but somehow I decided to watch the movie to the end ,I felt their pain and anger, scene well played out, it's powerful movie real as it can be...

Amistad had mixed emotions, horror, sadness and throughout the movie, I tried not to hate, i focus my thoughts on the time before the slaves were captured and thrown on that filthy ship those men, women and children were like us, living happy lives in their villages, husbands and wives watched in horror as they love ones was thrown in little corridor and bag off like animals .

All I was whispering "Where is God< why did he allowed this to happened?

Amistad is a 1997 historical drama film directed by the one and only the best Steven Spielberg,

however, it was based on the true story of a mutiny in 1839 .

well Amistad is a good example of trying to achieve the impossible and succeeding.

      Ya, but it's important to know your past. I've always been thankful that my ancestors opposed slavery. Don't get bitter! Also, watch Amazing Grace
