In the antebellum United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.
Sarah Paulson was originally unable to accept the role of Mary Epps, due to scheduling conflicts with the second season of American Horror Story (2011). When series creator Ryan Murphy found out about this he rearranged the show's production schedule so that Paulson could work on both projects.
Alright now, y'all fresh niggers. Y'all gonna be in the cuttin' gang.
When Solomon is being sold to Master Ford, the two nude women in the background both have shaved pubic hair, something virtually impossible in the 1840s.
