    DescriptionIn this riveting true story, Academy Award winner Louis Gossett, Jr., masterfully transports us to 1840s New York, Louisiana,and Washington, DC, to experience the kidnapping and twelve-year bondage of Solomon Northup, a free man of color. Published in 1853, this account was a bombshell in the national debate over slavery leading up to the Civil War and helped tilt public opinion in favor of abolition. Solomon captures the realityof slavery in stunning detail as we learn about the characters that populateplantation society and the intrigues of the bayou. Eventually a friend attempts a courageous rescue that could either result in Solomon's death or get him back to the arms of his family.
