In 1977, the miniseries “Roots” awakened the national conscience about the inhumanity of slavery during one of the most appalling periods in American history. The Oscar-nominated “12 Years a Slave” adds an exclamation point to that production through the true story of Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), the New York State citizen – a free man – who was kidnapped and made to work on a plantation in New Orleans in the 1800s.
