A Prince Among Slaves program

A Prince Among Slaves: A Film Screening and Discussion with Dr. Artemus Gaye
Artemus Gaye knew he descended from slaves, but it took a civil war in his native Liberia, eight trips to Mississippi and years of research to discover he is also descended from royalty.  Gaye traced back his ancestry and found that he is the seventh-generation descendant of Abduhl Rahahman, a West African prince-turned-slave who is the subject of the documentary film, “Prince Among Slaves.”
