Synopsis
Twelve Years a Slave is a memoir and slave narrative by Solomon Northup, as told to and edited by David Wilson. Northup, a black man who was born free in New York, details his kidnapping in Washington, D.C. and subsequent sale into slavery. After having been kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana by various masters, Northup was able to write to friends and family in New York, who were able to secure his release. Northup s account provides extensive details on the slave markets in Washington, D.C. and New Orleans and describes at length cotton and sugar cultivation on major plantations in Louisiana. The work was published by Derby & Miller of Auburn, New York, soon after Harriet Beecher Stowe s best-selling novel about slavery, Uncle Tom s Cabin (1852), to which it lent factual support. The memoir has been adapted and produced as the 1984 PBS television movie Solomon Northup s Odyssey and the 2013 Academy Award-winning film 12 Years a Slave.
