Students will meet Abdul Rahman Ibrahima, a West African Muslim prince and military commander. Rahman was captured by his enemies, sold to slave traders, endured the Middle Passage, and eventually taken to a plantation near Natchez, Mississippi. After 40 years of enslavement, he was freed by order of President John Quincy Adams and continued on to strengthen the abolitionist movement.

This program meets standards in African Culture, Black History Month, Social Studies, U.S. History & Culture, and World History & Culture.
