Prince Among Slaves

1788. The slave ship Africa set sail from the Gambia River, its hold laden with a profitable but highly perishable cargo-- hundreds of men, women and children bound in chains—headed for American shores. Eight months later, a handful of survivors found themselves for sale in Natchez, Mississippi. On the slave auction block, one of them, a 26-years-old male named Abdul Rahman Ibrahima is an African Prince.

Premieres tonight at 10 p.m.on PBS. For more information about the Prince Among Slaves please visit
