The Fortunate Slave.


Professor Grant tells the remarkable story of Job Ben Solomon, son of a high priest in Gambia, an itelligent Moslem, and himself a slave-owner, who was captured and sold as a slave in 1731 and taken to Maryland. He was rescued by General Oglethorpe and brought to London, where he favourably impressed all who met him and was even received at court before being returned to his own country. An interesting account of Gambias involvement in the slave trade.
