I'm not sure if you've had a chance to tune into channel 13's
airing of this biographical documentary
on the life of a real African Prince whom governed a large section of Africa
(more spacious than the 13 colonies).
It tells the griping story of how he had gotten captured and became enslaved in America (Mississippi) for over 40 yrs. Narrated by Mos-Def, the doc re-enacts his then famous struggle to become a free man and return to his homeland. Descendants of this man are even reunited by the story's end, giving viewers a more in depth perspective how his life expanded on two different continents. Hopefully you'll get an opportunity to watch this when 13 airs it again...which you know they will.
Happy Black History Month.
