Omar Ibn Said (1770-1864, aka “Uncle Moro” or “Moreau”) was the son of a wealthy family in what is now Senegal, who received a scholar’s education. He was enslaved and brought to South Carolina in 1807, just before the importing of slaves was outlawed. He fled, was re-captured in Fayetteville, NC, and spent the rest of his life as a house slave. He left 14 manuscripts in Arabic, including a partial copy of the Quran done from memory, essays on history and theology, and an autobiography.
