My Name is Omar: A Life in the Struggle for Liberation

This exhibit includes the only known autobiography of an American slave written in the Arabic language. Long thought lost, the document surfaced at auction in the 1990s and was purchased by a private collector, who has allowed it to be on exhibit at Clemson University.  This is the first time the document has been available to the public in South Carolina. See  here  for more information about this exhibit.
