It is one among many historical sources used in the development of the new motion picture Amistad. Written as a novel in 1953 by William A. Owens, this is one historians view of the Amistad mutiny.

Based on U.S. government documents, court records, official and personal correspondence, diaries, and newspaper accounts, it tells the true story of 53 illegally enslaved Africans who revolted against their captors. After the Amistad was intercepted and seized by the United States Navy, the imprisoned Africans were forced to stand trial for mutiny and murder in a case that reached the Supreme Court.With its impassioned plea for freedom for all people, Black Mutiny brilliantly recreates a critical moment in Americas racial history more than twenty years before the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation.

It is a rousing and unforgettable story of oppression, justice, and the precious cost of human dignity.
