This saga opens with the mutiny of captured Africans on the Amistad in 1839, follows the path of missionaries who risked their lives to establish schools among emancipated slaves in the South, and culminates with the testimonies of descendants of those who were freed. Documenting a stunning, but little known, story of rare courage and interracial partnership, this story will inspire anyone seeking to be faithful in challenging times.
