David Reynolds presented a history of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, published in 1852. The author profiled Ms. Stowe (1811-1896), whose novel supported the abolishment of slavery and received divided reception amongst the populations of the North and South. Mr. Reynolds explored the political and social factors that influenced the novel and its role in the discussion of race in America prior to and following the Civil War. David Reynolds spoke at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford, Connecticut. After his presentation he was interviewed by Ms. Kane and responded to questions from members of the audience. close
