“Everyone deserves not just to survive, but to live. This is the most important legacy of Solomon Northrup. I dedicate this award to all people who have endured slavery and the 21 million people who still suffer slavery today.”
Steve McQueen (via sonofafieldnegro)
So I didn’t have the stamina to stay up to watch the Oscars last night but hearing the news this morning that 12 Years A Slave won best picture made me happy. Such and incredible film, well deserved (I still think McQueen should have won best director though…).
