Specialty Tour: Agents of Their Own Emancipation

February 28, 2024

On February 28, 2024, the Stowe Center will be giving a specialty tour called “Agents of Their Own Emancipation,” to precede the lecture by scholar Dr. Ximena Abello Hurtado later that evening.


This tour will focus on the experiences of free and enslaved Black people in the 19th century. We will highlight the voices of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs, and Booker T. Washington, as we work to conceptualize the world in which Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
