Om föremålet

“I could not comprehend the justice of that law, or that religion, which upholds or recognizes the principle of slavery” -Solomon Northup, Twelve Years a Slave The harrowing memoir of Solomon Northup, “Twelve Years a Slave,” follows his life as a free man in New York who is kidnapped and sold into slavery. He would not find freedom again for twelve years. Northup wrote the story a year after being rescued. He gave a first-person account of life as a slave in the south.
