Ayuba Suleiman also known as Job Ben Solomon was from a family of religious scholars in Senegal. He was one of the rare slaves who was set free and returned back to his original life after a few years in slavery.
He lived between 1701 to 1773 and was himself a part of the slave trade. He was captured by some invaders and put into the appearance of slaves and sold.
Ayuba wrote a memoir and it is one of the earliest slave narrative available.
