The Descendants of '12 Years a Slave's' Solomon Northup
The descendants of Solomon Northup share what it means to be related to the African American who was kidnapped by slave traders in 1841. "Watching the movie so many times I feel like Chiwetel (Ejifor) is my grandfather Solomon Northup," says Evelyn Jackson (3rd great grand daughter). The family members get a surprise visit at THR photoshoot from Oscar nominated director Steve McQueen.
