El mejor testimonio sobre la época más sombría de la historia estadounidense son las desgarradoras memorias de Solomon Northup, un afroamericano nacido como hombre libre en Nueva York. Las escribió después de haber pasado doce años esclavizado en varias plantaciones de Luisiana. Corría el año 1841 cuando fue engañado, secuestrado y vendido. Desapareció sin dejar rastro. Su relato es sobrecogedor y su punto de vista, inusual, pues Northup conoció de primera mano qué significaba ser un hombre libre y ser víctima de la esclavitud. Su valioso libro ha subsistido por ser una crónica sobre el mal y el lado oscuro del ser humano, pero nos lega asimismo un bello tratado acerca de la amistad y de la superación.

"Such dupes are men to custom, and so prone To reverence what is ancient, and can plead A course of long observance for its use, That even servitude, the worst of ills, Because delivered down from sire to son, Is kept and guarded as a sacred thing. But is it fit or can it bear the shock Of rational discussion, that a man Compounded and made up, like other men, Of elements tumultuous, in whom lust And folly in as ample measure meet, As in the bosom of the slave he rules, Should be a despot absolute, and boast Himself the only freeman of his land?­" Cowper.
