New York Times Corrects Solomon Northup Article

A typo has come back to haunt the New York Times. The newspaper published a correction Tuesday to the headline of its Jan. 20, 1853, article that misspelled Solomon Northup’s last name as “Northrup.” The piece was written to review Solomon Northup’s 12 Years a Slave, the memoir adapted for the Oscar-winning film. (Photo: courtesy NY Times)
