Tariq Nelson announced the exciting documentary premiere of “Prince Among Slaves.” The documentary details the amazing life of Abdur Rahman Ibrahim Sori. I suggest anyone in the DC area check it out.
…in Washington, DC at the Cramton Auditorium at Howard University on December 1st at 2:00PM.
This documentary was filmed by the Unity Publications Foundation here in the DC area and will be shown on PBS in February. It tells the true story of a little known African American hero, an African prince who was sold into slavery in the American South in 1788. His name was Abdul Rahman Ibrahima Sori, and he remained enslaved for forty years, before ultimately regaining his freedom and returning to Africa. (read about the documentary here)
Several Muslim Organizations in the DC Area are already co-sponsoring this event
If anyone wanting tickets to the premiere or sponsorship information can contact me
