Salons at The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center are 21st-century parlor conversations about race, class and gender. Since 2008 Salons at Stowe have provided a forum for lively discussion on contemporary topics that connect to 19th-century issues. Featured guests provide a starting point for discussion and are a resource for the audience. With the moderator and guests, the audience creates an “Inspiration to Action” agenda — a list of actions to address the issue at hand.
