KG and Ringy are in Louisiana, on the trail of Solomon Northup, a free black man who was kidnapped in the 1840s and sold into slavery. Solomon chronicled his ordeal in his autobiography, “12 Years a Slave,” which was made into an Academy Award-winnin... (more)g movie 160 years later. Precious few artifacts remain from enslaved people, so the boys have teamed up with two of Solomon’s descendants to help bring light to this dark time in history.
