A Prince Among Slaves

By way of Writeous Sister

A Prince Among Slaves

from Islamica Magazine

An African prince falls from the heights of a sophisticated and educated society into the depths of slavery and ignorance in Mississippi. Abdul Rahman’s willpower to remain a faithful servant to God overcomes the obstacles of being a slave in antebellum America, and reminds the world of the long-forgotten first Muslims in North America.

There have been some excellent books on Muslim slaves in the Americas published in recent years. It's a fascinating subject. I did a paper on the subject my freshman year in college.
