Harriet Beecher Stowe's Iconic Uncle Tom's Cabin: A Revisit
The aim of this roundtable is to engage the audience in a renewal of Stowe's place in the Abolition Movement by re-investigating the power of Uncle Tom's Cabin as a corrosive against slavery. Three roundtable participants will share cultural, literary, and value orientations about the importance of Stowe's best-selling novel and its iconic role in teaching its own generation and the following generations about the brutality of enslaving Africans in the United States.
