Amistad is a film that shows the beginning of slavery and how it all began. To my surprise, the African Americans started slavery themselves, because they traded themselves for guns, materials, food, and many other things.
Slaves were brought over on the ship, La Amistad from Cuba and tried to free themselves from their owners. The slaves killed all of the whites on their ship except for two.

too many of them; they were fed enough food for a mouse, beaten to death even when doing nothing wrong. They define pain and suffering, because they lived through that everyday of their lives.
I give this movie a 10. I thought it was well written, because it truly depicts slavery how it was. It gives us a clear overview of what went out and how slavery started. It is something I would definitely watch again.
