Movie Premiere at University of Indianapolis

"Prince Among Slaves", a film adapted from the book of the same name, will have its world premiere at 5:30 p.m. Saturday (8 December) in the Ransburg Auditorium of the University of Indianapolis, 1400 East Hanna Avenue, Indianapolis. John Clark notes in his blog that "Prince Among Slaves" is a vivid, dramatic feature film of an extraordinary man (Abdulrahman Ibrahim Ibn Sori) in extraordinary times, interweaving universal themes of bondage and deliverance, pride and forbearance, guile and providence with the wild and unruly early years of America’s Kingdom of Cotton. There's no charge for admission. Supported with grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Black Programming Consortium, this 60-minute film produced by Alex Kronemer is intended for broadcast on PBS in 2008.
