Trailer: Prince Among Slaves
“I think (Prince Among Slaves) gave students a greater appreciation of what was taken from the slaves in terms of being denied the right to worship as they had before enslavement and how much of that religious tradition and heritage was lost through slavery.”
nJoan Boland, Program Leader, Social Studies, Glen Ridge High School
“Having students understand the African culture that was brought to the US via the slave trade is a good way to start…students are also under the impression that Muslims only come from the Middle East. It helps to see other cultures practicing Islam to open up stereotypes.”
Kelly Epstein, U.S. History and AP Psychology
“..any understanding of the impact of the religion on early American history is a benefit. The more we know about all religions and the context the less strange and foreign they will appear.”
Jeff Jasper, US History and Government
