The lives of Omar ibn Said and Olaudah Equiano are indicative of many of our course objectives for this semester. Their lives give us a window into the
religious context by which Africans experienced slavery and practiced their own forms of worship. Write a 3-5 page comparative analysis (750-word
minimum to 1200-word maximum) with specific examples on how the lives of Said and Equiano demonstrate the following course learning objectives:
Comprehensive knowledge about the Atlantic Slave Trade and the transmigration of West African religious worldviews within the African Diaspora.
The religious formations of enslaved and free people of color during the antebellum period in North America.
The historical role of African Traditional beliefs, Islam and Christianity in the development of enslaved and free people of color in North America.
