The Descendants of Solomon Northup

One of the reasons I love The Hollywood Reporter are reports such as this. Under Janice Min’s editorial direction, the publication has been one of my favorites for the past five years to read at home or on the go.

My respect is raised even higher for THR after seeing these portraits of Solomon Northup’s descendants. Staff members manages to track down five generations of his family members for portraits. I feel honored just looking at these photographs. May his legacy live on!
