Best News Heard All Day: “12 Years A Slave” Will Be Sent To Public High Schools Nationwide

I had never heard of Solomon Northup’s story until last year and that is tragic and all too common of a statement. I am an advocate for education and I believe that stories like Northup’s should be taught in public and private schools. In order to progress, you must know your history. Fortunately, Steve McQueen’s must-see film “12 Years a Slave”, a study guide accompaniment, and Northup’s memoir are going to be sent to public high schools across America. This news demonstrates the power of film at its best.
