    PRINCE AMONG SLAVES
    The Amazing True Story of an African Prince Enslaved in the American South
    Coming to PBS February 4th, 10PM
    (check local listings at pbs.org)
    A Documentary Film by Unity Productions Foundation
    Narrated by Mos Def
    Michael Wolfe and Alex Kronemer, Executive Producers

    Prince Among Slaves follows the true life story of Abdul-Rahman Ibrahima Sori, the Prince of a large African Kingdom and Captain of his father's armies who was captured in a battle in 1788 and sold into the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

    After enduring the brutal Middle Passage, he eventually ended up in Mississippi at the birth of the U.S., where he remained enslaved for almost 40 years. Amazing circumstances finally led to his release, but not his freedom, nor the freedom of his large family.

    Defying the command that he return immediately to Africa and still technically a slave, Abdul-Rahman set out on a quest to raise enough money to purchase his family's freedom. Widely written about and sought after for public events, he became the most famous African in America, meeting with President John Quincy Adams and other leaders of the day.

    Prince Among Slaves paints a vivid picture of the extraordinary times in which this remarkable man lived, interweaving the universal themes of bondage and deliverance, privation and perseverance, to tell a story of survival of the human spirit about a person who endured the humiliation of slavery without ever losing his dignity or his hope for freedom.
