NEW YORK - The New York Times has printed a correction for misspelling 161 years ago the name of a black man who was sold into slavery and whose memoirs were turned into the Oscar-winning movie "12 Years a Slave." In a Jan. 20, 1853, article, the Times misspelled Solomon Northup's surname as Northrop and as Northrup. The Times corrected Northup's name on Tuesday, after the errors were pointed out by someone looking at its archives. The correction said the article about Northup had "misspelled his surname as Northrop. And the headline misspelled it as Northrup." Northup was born in New York and was kidnapped and sold as a slave in 1841.... more

Steve McQueen's slavery odyssey, based on Solomon Northup's 1853 memoir, has been hailed as a landmark corrective to the movie industry's virtual blindness to slavery, instead creating whiter tales like 1940 best-picture winner "Gone With the Wind." "12 Years a Slave" is the first best-picture winner directed by a black filmmaker. "Everyone deserves not just to survive, but to live," said McQueen, who dedicated the honor to those, past and present, who have endured slaver... more
