Prince Among Slaves(2007) introduces the world to fact that all Slave that entered the United States and other parts of the world were not uneducated or salvages.

In the Movie, Dr. Artemus Gaye from Monrovia Liberia Africa was shown meeting his American family that were left behind in the United States once Prince Abdul-Rahman Sori was returned to Africa.
In 2014,Dr. Artemus Gaye of and Karen Chatman of Natchez Mississippi; both direct decendants of Abdul-Rahman's were reinstated their official Royal titles of Sheik (Prince)and Sheika (Princess). The two Royals are using their titles for the betterment of Humanity.
