This Thursday, February 28 starting at 3:00 p.m. in the MTCC auditorium, join us in viewing the film Prince Among Slaves. Part of the NEH/ALA Muslim Journeys Bookshelf collection awarded to Galvin Library, Prince Among Slaves recounts the true story of an African Muslim prince who was captured and sold into slavery in the American South. After 40 years of enslavement, he regained his freedom, became a national celebrity, and dined in the White House.

First in a series of events about Islam planned for 2013 by Galvin Library, this screening of Prince Among Slaves celebrates Black History Month and is in partnership with the Office of Spiritual Life and Service Learning and the Student Center for Diversity and Inclusion.
