|Omar ibn Said was captured in Senegal and brought to North Carolina when he was 37 years old.|
Here is one account from The Autobiography of Omar ibn Said, and enslaved Muslim living in the U.S. in 1831.
"Wicked men took me by violence and sold me to the Christians. We sailed a month and a half on the great sea to the place called Charleston in the Christian land. I fell into the hands of a small, weak and wicked man, who feared not God at all, nor did he read (the gospel) at all nor pray. I was afraid to remain with a man so depraved and who committed so many crimes and I ran away."
