NEW YORK (Reuters) – The New York Times on Tuesday corrected a 161-year-old story about Solomon Northup, whose memoir was the basis for the Academy Award-winning movie “12 Years a Slave.”
The January 20, 1853, article, headlined “The Kidnapping Case,” tells the story of Northup, a black man born free in the northern United States, who was kidnapped in Washington D.C. in 1841 and sold into slavery in Louisiana.
NEW YORK, March 3 (Reuters) – In the fall of 1992, a group
of music industry legends converged on New York City to pay
tribute to Bob Dylan by performing his songs at a concert that
has come to be seen as one of the most exciting in rock history.
This week, Sony Music Entertainment will release “Bob Dylan
- The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration,” a new,
high-definition DVD/CD edition of the concert at Madison Square
Garden. The show marked Dylan’s 30-year recording career with
Columbia Records, now a division of Sony. PBS will begin airing
the new version beginning March 4.
