12 years a slave - Le livre qui a inspiré le film de Steve McQueen by Solomon Northup Summary

" Je suis né libre et j'ai vécu avec ma famille jusqu'au jour où deux hommes m'ont drogué, séquestré et vendu comme esclave. Pendant douze ans, j'ai connu la servitude et l'humiliation. Dormant à même le sol, affamé, fouetté, j'ai failli sombrer dans la folie... mais je n'ai jamais laissé la cruauté me briser. Depuis ma libération, des romans se sont intéressés à l'esclavage, et ont connu une diffusion sans précédent. Je partage dans ces pages mon expérience personnelle. Mon objectif est d'en faire un récit sincère et fidèle, et laisse aux autres le soin de décider ce qui, de la fiction ou de la réalité, donne l'image de l'injustice la plus cruelle ou de l'aliénation la plus sévère. " La bouleversante histoire vraie qui a inspiré le film

Twelve Years a Slave and Narrative of the Life of an American Slave by Solomon Northup,Frederick Douglass Summary

Twelve Years A Slave and Narrative of the Life of an American Slave (African American Classics Collection)Solomon Northup and Frederick Douglas I conclude these remarks by copying the following portrait of the religion of the south, (which is, by communion and fellowship, the religion of the north,) which I soberly affirm is "true to the life," and without caricature or the slightest exaggeration. It is said to have been drawn, several years before the present anti-slavery agitation began, by a northern Methodist preacher, who, while residing at the south, had an opportunity to see slaveholding morals, manners, and piety, with his own eyes. "Shall I not visit for these things? saith the Lord. Shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?" Sincerely and earnestly hoping that this little book may do something toward throwing light on the American slave system, and hastening the glad day of deliverance to the millions of my brethren in bonds—faithfully relying upon the power of truth, love, and justice, for success in my humble efforts—and solemnly pledging my self anew to the sacred cause,—I subscribe myself, FREDERICK DOUGLASS LYNN,Mass., April 28, 1845.
