Film: Prince Among Slaves


In 1788, the slave ship Africa set sail from the Gambia River, its hold laden with a profitable but highly perishable cargo---hundreds of men, women and children bound in chains---headed for American shores. Eight months later, a handful of survivors found themselves for sale in Natchez, Mississippi. One, a 26-year-old named Abdul Rahman, made an astonishing claim: that he was a prince of an African kingdom larger and more developed than the newly formed United States. Prince Among Slaves is the remarkable true story of an African prince, who endured the humiliation of slavery without losing his dignity or hope for freedom.  

The film will be shown in the upstairs Community Rooms.
