The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center uses Stowe’s life and work to inspire YOU to change your world.
Stowe wrote the anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, in 1852. The world was never the same. Abolition became possible. Emancipation became law. But today, in the 21st century, inequity is everywhere. What would Stowe do? What will YOU do?
