At the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, our Black Perspectives tour emphasizes the Black experience of the 19th century and today. During a guided tour guests will uncover the voices of people of color surrounding Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The Black Perspectives tour uses Stowe’s home and collections to promote vibrant conversations focused on the Black voices that influenced Stowe and the voices that influence positive change today.


At the Amistad Center, your tour will focus on how, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, African Americans used photography to commemorate important events, but also to express self-dignity and respect. Investigate black identity and imagery, how contemporary social movements started from behind the camera and ways photography help heal a divided community.
