This video has two special and unique stories told in their words by two courageous people, an adult and a young boy. The first hand narratives are from rare primary source material by those who lived the experience. The stories are of William Winter who braved a double self-emancipation and became an honored and widely respected citizen in the small Connecticut town of Deep River. The second story is actually written by Ka-le, a young Mende boy who was aboard the Amistad during its bold liberation from captives and subsequent freedom through an extraordinary judicial process. An accompanying publication, Two Stories of Freedom Student Reader, is available separately at https://whsmediaproductions.com.
