Amistad is an inspiring audiobook made all the more moving by Courtney B. Vance's performance. The story tells of the murder trial of Singbe Pieh and 53 other enslaved Africans who staged a bloody rebellion on board the Spanish ship, Amistad. It gives poignant insight into our country's history and its budding movement to abolish slavery. Vance commands the text and moves fluidly between dialects--from Singbe Pieh's native Mende to the Hispanic accent of a disgruntled Spanish sailor. Characters come alive with his reading and allow listeners to live along with them. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
