Permanent exhibition of “ Cinque Lives Here” tells the Amistad story. In this room are found the most significant collection of material from the Amistad affair. The portrait of Cinque and the painting of the ship, a letter from Kale, one of the captives, and a letter from John Quincy Adams to the captives, allow the visitor to see the actual items of that day. The portrait of Cinque by New Haven painter Nathaniel Jocelyn is generally understood to be the first and one of the finest portrayals of an African in American art.
