Religious Commentary – No Apology Necessary

An essential book for every christian to read. Interpreting racial significance in the Bible. Black people in the Bible. Church of God in Christ pastor and evangelist Earl W. Carter, Jr has written a book in which he contends that Old Testament prophecies foretold the tragedy of African slavery and hold promise for relieving racial tension in America if heeded. No Apology Necessary by Reverend Earl W. Carter Jr

Review by Reginald Thomas: I am a spirit filled pastor who is also a black american in Oklahoma City Oklahoma. I was also raised in the midst of racial tension, although it probably was a bit more subtle than that of the authors’. My parents insisted that God had created us equal and treated all races the same, according to our christian faith. I’ve never been raised to hate other races but I have certainly felt the hatred and been the object of attack in many different situations. This book, coming from the authors life and experiences, summed up by the Word of God, reveals what has been going on in the earth since Noah. A dark skinned people who knew God spread out in different directions and covered the earth. Mixed marriages influenced their faith and many turned away from God. The american black man’s ancestors knew God and worshipped him and were the source of knowledge and industry to the world. But they turned from serving God to the worship of idols. The book states “Idoltry = (equals) Slavery. Every time any nation left God to worship idols that nation found itself enslaved. Furthermore, the author proves scripturally that God sought to prevent this from happening by sending the prophets to prophesy against Egypt and Ethiopia (ancestors to the american black) urging them to repent.

The result of their disobedience was, brother against brother, being enslaved by their brothers, being sold to serve our European brother (I believe was stated to be Japheth) and sent naked and in chains on ships to another country of which they had never been. The first book placed in our ancestors hand on american soil was, the Word of God, which brings the authors’ revelation full circle. God did not want the black man to go into slavery but rather to prevent him from suffering by provoking him to repent. Idolatry is still the reason today for the oppression of any nation of people, not man. This is a spiritual principle! The author further explains that the white man’s “irritation” with the black man was also prophesied as a result of our lack of repentance. But through Jesus Christ, every curse is broken and we are returned to God free from oppression in our hearts and minds and full of forgiveness toward all that have offended us!!!!!!! What a wonderful book!!!! I Challenge you to read and digest this book. I believe that it’s content is a new standard for a new millenium for the believer. We should not hold the truth in unrighteousness. Neither can we continue to say “we love God” and hated our brothers. This is a truth for all races and nations to read!!! The truth shall make us free!!!!!

Prince Among Slaves: True story of an African Prince enslaved in America

Prince Among Slaves: True story of an African Prince enslaved in America
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 finally regained his freedom, became a national celebrity, and dined in the White House. This is an incredible story about an incredible man who endured the humiliation of slavery without ever losing his dignity or his hope for freedom.

Prince Among Slaves was conceived, designed, and executive produced by Unity Productions Foundation (UPF), and received substantial NEH planning and production funding in 2005 and 2006. The program was co-produced with Spark Media and Duke Media, Inc. It won the Best Documentary Award at the 2007 American Black Film Festival in Los Angeles and received a national broadcast on PBS, leading off the network’s Black History Month programming in February 2008. Prior to the broadcast, Unity Productions Foundation coordinated screenings of Prince Among Slaves in over 20 major U.S. cities in such diverse locations as the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham, North Carolina; the Fellowship Chapel in Detroit; the Rialto Center for the Performing Arts in Atlanta; and the AFC World Outreach Center in Chicago. With support from organizations such as the Urban League, National Black Arts Festival, NAACP Chapters, Howard University, and Americans for Informed Democracy, these screenings brought together civic leaders committed to supporting the arts, civil rights and cultural diversity.

Prince Among Slaves explores the dramatic true story of an African prince, Abdul Rahman Ibrahima Sori, who was captured in a war in West Africa and enslaved in Mississippi for 40 years. Abdul Rahman was trilingual, a successful military general and the heir to Futa Jallon, a West African Empire the size of Great Britain. While enslaved, Abdul Rahman toiled on a small, struggling plantation in Mississippi. He married a first-generation enslaved woman, and they had nine children. Through improbable circumstances, twenty years into his enslavement he was reunited with a marooned sailor that his father had rescued decades earlier. This event brought the first public attention to Abdul Rahman, which over the next several years led him to become the most famous African in America.

His story eventually attracted the interest of such powerful men as President John Quincy Adams and Secretary of State Henry Clay. In a diplomatic effort aimed at freeing captured American sailors in Morocco, Abdul Rahman was released to return to Africa. However, his wife and adult children (and their respective wives and children) were not. For about a year he traveled around the U.S., speaking to paid audiences and trying to win patrons to buy his extended family’s freedom. He was only partially successful. He was forced to leave the country due to changing political circumstances, and only had enough money to purchase his wife and two of his sons and their families free. He continued to work for their freedom while in Africa, but died tragically a few months after he returned to Africa.

His story of courage and forbearance under the meanest of circumstances is a powerful drama that not only speaks directly to the African American experience, but also to the human experience. It expands our idea about what it means to be human, what we’re capable of surviving, and how our dignity can remain intact, even when under relentless assault. And because his story takes place beginning around 1776, it also illuminates the foundational period in American history as viewed from a perspective that is generally ignored when thinking about the establishment of the country: that of the African people enslaved in the early years of nationhood.
