Speaker or author: editor
Newspaper or publication: Colored American (1837 - 1842)
The writer provides an overview of two recent meetings with the freed Amistad captives to raise funds for their continued education and eventual trip home. The meetings offered audiences a cultural understanding of the "liberated Africans'" native country, as well as an example of their progress while living in this country. The hope is that a mission can be established in Africa involving these liberated captives.
