12 Years a Slave: Who was Solomon Northup? There were always those who claimed Northup's tale was an exaggeration, written as anti-slavery propaganda. "After he was freed, there is documentation of his attempt to secure legal redress against his kidnappers. It was a bitter experience for him because in the nation's capital, Washington DC, Solomon's colour meant he wasn't allowed to testify. So the court case got nowhere but the paperwork is now a big help to historians."

This is based on a true story. Solomon Northrop is a black man in the mid 19th century before slavery was abolished. He's a born freeman and works as a carpenter and is also a part time musician. One day he is approached by some men who want him to play for them. However, that is not their intention; they have kidnapped him and sold him into slavery. After many years in slavery and the help of sympathizers he is freed and returned to his family in NY.
