Civil War Lecture Series: Screening and Discussion of “Prince Among Slaves”
As part of the History Department’s Civil War Lecture Series and the NEH/ALA Muslim Journeys program, we will screen the PBS film Prince Among Slaves. The film is about African prince Abd al Rahman Ibrahima who was sold into the trans-Atlantic slave trade and brought to the United States. A discussion with History Department faculty will follow.
The History Department’s Civil War Commemoration Lecture series enters its third year with new discussions of baseball, medicine, Native Americans in the war, and slavery.
This first event is has been created in collaboration with the Muslim Journeys program–the result of a grant to ASU’s Porter Henderson Library from the National Endowment of the Humanities and the American Library Association).
The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association, the Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University, Oxford University Press, and Twin Cities Public Television. Support was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
