Solomon Northup is deceived, kidnapped, abused, removed from family, deprived of identity, and beaten into a long, weary, unjustified submission. Yet he is never broken. 12 Years a Slave is a testament to the supremacy of the human spirit and the persistent resilience of hope. Even in his worst days of sorrow, he endured the brutalities of Edwin Epps, he never gives in to disappear, and he always knew deep in his heart that one day he will be free. He never loses faith in his friends, constantly assured that if he can only get word to the North then they will indeed come to his rescue. And they do. In the end, Solomon Northup’s tear-jerking journey uplifts because in his testimony is evidence that faith and hope can withstand—and triumph.
