Call in to speak with the host
Irene Northrup-Zahos, is the great, great granddaughter of Solomon Northup, the author of 'Twelve Years a Slave'. She is related to Solomon via his son, Alonzo; Alonzo's son, John Henry ('Zip') Northrup, Solomon's grandson and my grandfather; John Henry's son, my father, John Calvin Northrup. She has written the essay, 'Absent From the Table', which can be accessed via www.twelveyearsaslave.org which is a website that Frank Eakin has. She has been hesitant in pursuing contact with media outlets being guarded of her family's (Solomon's) responsibility and the legacy of her 2x great grandfather. The primary reason for this hesitancy is obvious when someone views her from upfront as I she is White! Her immediate family is of diverse ancestry and lineage.
