12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave

Solomon Northup


This unforgettable memoir used to be the foundation for the Academy Award-winning movie 12 Years a Slave. this is often the genuine tale of Solomon Northup, who used to be born and raised as a freeman in manhattan. He lived the yankee dream, with a home and a loving kin - a spouse and children. Then at some point he used to be drugged, abducted, and offered into slavery within the deep south. those are the real money owed of his twelve not easy years as a slave - many think this memoir is much more photo and demanding than the movie. His impressive trip proves the resiliency of desire and the human spirit regardless of the main grueling and ambitious of conditions.
