After 40 years of enslavement, an African Muslim prince who was captured and sold into slavery finally regained his freedom, became a national celebrity, and dined in the White House. This is an incredible story about an incredible man who endured the humiliation of slavery without ever losing his dignity or his hope for freedom. The documentary will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Syed Rashid Naim of Georgia State University. Dr Naim is a scholar on Muslims in America going back to the time of slavery.
