"SOLOMON NORTHUP HISTORY & THE FILM, 12 YEARS A SLAVE"

Renee Moore, Founder, Solomon Northup Day®
American History Educator & Speaker

I began a quest in 1999 to bring attention to the history of Solomon Northup in this region and further north, by engaging dialogue, historians, academia and others; which I have accomplished for 15 years. [based on Twelve Years a Slave, autobiography, 1853]

My mission is to uncover and find truth, reconciliation and healing around issues that have divided the country for generations

Everyone needs to know and understand the rich cultural history of African Americans in particular youth so that they may realize, celebrate and value their lives in the present and develop a sense of real sustainable self-worth.

“I enjoyed having Renee Moore, as a co-presenter with me in Plattsburgh, at a post film discussion of 12 Years a Slave and slave history. Had I known she was so good I’d have invited her earlier!”
