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 of them, 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. The PBS
production Prince Among Slaves is the remarkable true story
of an African prince, who endured the humiliation of slavery
without ever losing his dignity or hope for freedom. Narrated
by Mos Def. This film is unrated. (Running time: 60 min.)
DVDs will be available for purchase.
