Evening Film Programs

    Join us as The A. Holly Patterson Library at Nassau Community College hosts showings of two films from the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf.

 Koran by Heart - March 19 from 7:00pm to 8:20pm in the CCB room 326.

In this 80-minute documentary, three 10-year old children leave their native countries to participate in one of the Islamic world's most famous competitions, a test of memory and recitation known as The International  Holy Koran Competition.


 Prince Among Slaves- April 23 from 8:30pm to 9:30 pm in CCB room TBA.

In 1788, the slave ship Africa set sail towards America, with precious cargo: hundreds of men, women, and children. Eight months later, a handful of survivors were for sale in Mississippi. One of them, 26-year-old Abdul Rahman, made an amazing claim: he was a prince of an African kingdom. Prince Among Slaves is the true story of an African Prince, who endured the humiliation of slavery without ever losing his dignity or hope for freedom.


  These programs are presented through a grant provided by The National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association and co-sponsored by NCC Student Activities Evening Club Hour and the A. Holly Patterson Library at Nassau Community College. 

 Presenters: Professors Katrina Frazier and  Rosanne Humes
