12 Years a Slave

Solomon Northrup

Northrup, a free man with a family who was tricked and sold into slavery is the man behind this memoir and the award-winning 2013 movie starring Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o. Originally published in 1853, Northrup, who would ultimately win his freedom back, became a sensation because of his measured response to the horrors he faced as a slave.
