TWELVE YEARS A SLAVE | Solomon Northup |
Born a free man.
Enslaved through treachery.
Oppressed in a hopeless situation.
"Don't leave me, Mama-don't leave me," screamed the child, as her mother was pushed harshly forward. "Don't leave me. Come back, Mama," she still cried, stretching forth her little arms imploringly. But she cried in vain. Such were the heartbreaking scenes Solomon Northup encountered during his slavery. His personal story of the twelve years he spent as a slave in Louisiana is a stunning narrative of a segment of American life in the nineteenth century. His attention to detail and his balanced portrayal of slave life in the South are truly remarkable. Twelve Years A Slave stands out as a must-read for all those interested in seeing a more complete picture of American history.
Paperback, 225 pages.
