Discovering Amistad

 is a nonprofit educational organization that provides full-year programming on its tall ship, the Amistad, in classrooms and at historic sites of partner organizations. It enables children and adults in Connecticut and the region to discover the story of the Amistad and its impact on Connecticut and the nation. Importantly, the organization provides learning opportunities for children and adults to discover the relevance of the Amistad to today's world.


Discovering Amistad will help ensure that the story of Amistad is not forgotten. Amistad is a very important part of our state’s and our nation’s history. It is a story that must be told until it is known by all. We must learn from our history in order to create a brighter future.
