Rate this:
In 1788, the slave ship Africa set sail towards America with hundreds of men, women, and children in its cargo hold. Eight months later, the few Africans who survived the voyage found themselves put up for sale in Natchez, Mississippi. One of them, 26-year-old Abdul Rahman, made an astonishing claim-that he was the prince of a West African kingdom larger and more developed than the newly formed United States. This program presents the true story of a royal figure caught up in humanity's most horrific enterprise, who endured the humiliation of slavery without ever losing his dignity or his hope of freedom.
