Students to see ‘Amistad’

“Amistad” producer Debbie Allen, cast member Djimon Hounsou and sports legend Earvin (Magic) Johnson plan to speak to an audience of 600 Los Angeles high school students today following a screening of the new Steven Spielberg picture.

The students, from 13 schools, have been asked to come prepared with questions for the panel. Allen will speak about her 12-year quest to bring the story of “Amistad,” a historical drama about a slave revolt, to the screen. DreamWorks, Spielberg’s production company, has provided the schools with “Amistad” study guides.

The screening, at 9:30 a.m., is being presented by DreamWorks and the Magic Johnson Foundation, which raises funds to support community-based organizations in inner cities and HIV/AIDS organizations specializing in education, prevention and care. It will take place at the Magic Johnson Theaters, 4020 Marlton Ave., Los Angeles.
