Wrongful Imprisonment Still Prince Abd-El-Rahman
Wrongful imprisonment didn’t start with many of the african americans released from jail after 30 years after evidence finds them not guilty.
Wrongful imprisonment has been going on for centuries. One man who this was perpetrated against was a noble moorish prince.
Prince Abd-El-Rahman, was a highly educated man of Timbuctoo.
Timbuktu citizens were always highly educated. Prince Rahman was the grandson of the Emperor of Timbuctoo and was captured in a battle and eventually sold into the American slavery system. He essentially became a prince among slaves!
What happened is that years later an anglo saxon male doctor was traveling through Mali was in Natchez Mississippi and recognized him.
The doctor paid $4,000 for Rahman’s liberation and his children and return to his land. He was officially freed in 1829.
