Event Description

12 Years a Slave is an award-winning movie, based on a true story, set in the Red River region of Louisiana during the mid 1800s. 

This powerful and emotionally gripping film explores the harrowing journey of Solomon Northup, a free African-American man kidnapped and sold into slavery.
