Solomon Northup

Twelve Years a Slave

In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty at the hands of a malevolent slave owner, as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist will forever alter his life.

I hope slavery will be ceased and unfortunate people will live a good life after all. Through all the pages I could feel the sufferings of each person in this book n cried a lot. Black or brown or white everybody deserves to be treated equally
