About This ResourceThe stories of numerous Muslim individuals who were brought as slaves to the United States are available in state and national archives. Omar ibn Said, Abd al-Rahman Ibrahima, Nicholas Said, and Mahommah Gardo Bacquaqua are among those who are the subjects of narratives, images, and published books available in this digital archive. Documenting the American South (DocSouth) is a digital publishing initiative that provides Internet access to texts, images, and audio files related to Southern history, literature, and culture. Currently, DocSouth includes sixteen thematic collections of books, diaries, posters, artifacts, letters, oral history interviews, and songs.
