About the Author

Solomon Northup was a free-born African American man from New York who gained recognition after being kidnapped and sold into slavery in the Deep South. He managed to get word to his family, and was freed and brought back home. He sued the slave traders, but under District of Columbia law, he could not testify against white men, and he lost. He became very active in the abolitionist cause, and aided on the Underground Railroad.
