"When you look at the mission of the AMISTAD America project, and the involvement of the Amistad in the OpSail event on the 4th of July, you can see a unique opportunity for AMISTAD America to truly make a substantial impact," said Edwin Molina, President of USA Video Interactive. "For some of us, the 4th of July 2000 will represent almost 225 years of freedom, but for others, it may evoke different feelings and thoughts of slavery and other past injustices. It is our hope that by celebrating the Amistad on the 4th of July, and having it sail among some of the most dignified vessels from around the world, OpSail and the Amistad can begin to help educate about, and fill in historical gaps surrounding the issues of, slavery. USA Video Interactive is proud and honored to bring this historical event and its message to the world via the Internet."
