NYTimes Corrects Original Story From ’12 Years A Slave’ Published In 1853

Posted by on Mar 4, 2014 in Celebrity News, Celebrity Scandal, Politics, Read More Books | 2 comments

161 years ago, the New York Times published a story on the “seizure and recovery” of Solomon “Northrup”, a free black man who was kidnapped in 1841 from Washington, D.C. and sold into slavery in Louisiana until he was rescued in 1853. However, his real name was Solomon “Northup”, and social media caught the mistake forcing the New York Times to publish a corrected version of the original article. A twitter user to be exact by the name of Rebecca Skloot, discovered the mistake in the New York Times archive. How cool is that?!?

Solomon Northup story was eventually retold in a memoir written by David Wilson titled, 12 Years A Slave: Narrative of Solomon Northup…. The book was very popular when first published, but over the years the book got lost in the shuffle, until it resurfaced in the 1960′s researched and republished by Joseph Logsdon and Sue Eakin.

Listen. Stories like this make it really hard to even LIKE the teenagers of today.  This past Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida, a group of about 300 teenagers took over a local Wal-Mart, throwing food, robbing the store and shooting in the parking lot.  According to The Daily Mail, the teens are believed to have come from a party not far away, where one teen was allegedly shot in the leg.

At this time the police haven’t made any arrests but if they do, they will be facing criminal charges. I have so many questions. Where are their parents?? What kind of party is able to contain 300 teens?? Why aren’t they at home?? *sigh* I can’t even fathom hanging out with that many people and just smashing mobbing it up like it’s the most natural thing to do.  And, of course, some of the teens posted the video to YouTube. LAWD. Check out the footage below
