REEL HISTORY END OF COURSE ESSAY
BY: CHRIS AGRO
The film that made the biggest impression on me was "La Amistad". It really opened my eyes about how terrible the whites treated slaves. I couldnt believe the conditions the slaves were put in for months on the ships that brought them to America from wherever they were. Also, the fact that they would throw slaves off the ship and leave them to drown because they underestimated the amount of food they would need is horrendous. I can't imagine that men could be that ruthless.
