The Life and Times of Omar ibn Sayyid
A well-regarded African Muslim teacher and scholar from Futa Torro (modern Senegal), West Africa, Omar ibn Sayyid was enslaved and brought to South Carolina in the early 1800s and remained in bondage for the rest of his life. Yet the records he created during his life illustrate that physical and mental bondage are two very different things!
Join us for this one-act play, written and acted by Ahmad Kenya, as well as an artifact presentation, all of which are appropriate for children and adults.
