By Zahir Ahmed. This is the glorious story of American Muslim slaves who kept the spirit of Islam alive in their hearts for centuries during one of the most difficult trials in human history--U.S. Slavery. It is estimated that up to 30% of the slaves brought from Africa to American continents were Muslims...many of them scholars of the Holy Qur'an! A star appeared at the horizon of the United States, President Abraham Lincoln helped recovered the human rights of millions of African Americans.
This film, superbly narrated by Steve Boergadine, also presents the facts about the 800 year old Islamic civilization of West Africa at the time of the slave trade. Islam firmly and practically demonstrated the equality of man through history regardless of race or color. The freed Muslim slaves in America began to look for their heritage which resulted in many African-American movements. This documentary video is dedicated to all those people who sacrificed, and to those who continue to struggle, for the cause of equality and dignity of man. Includes interviews with historian D. Sulayman Nyang. IVP (2004), 69 min.
