A Prince of Morocco lives in Princeton in political exile.
It will not surprise some members of the Princeton community, particularly those who follow the work of Not in Our Town (an interracial, interfaith social action group in Princeton committed to speak truth about ‘everyday racism’) that the following incident occurred: When the Prince was a student at the university (Class of ’85) he got picked up by local police, in connection with a Hoagie Haven robbery, and spent an hour in the hoosegow. He was released with apologies to the Moroccan embassy.
