Writings of Harriet Beecher Stowe
This program was telecast from the Harriet Beecher Stowe house in Ohio where she taught school and came in contact with several fugitive slaves.
Guests examined the history of slavery, abolitionism, and the antebellum era through the writings of Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Stowe, daughter of Congregationalist minister Lyman Beecher and brother of Henry Ward Beecher, wrote several novels, but became famous for her work on behalf of the abolitionist movement.
