Stowe Prize 2021 (Onsite Event):

Inside the Stowe Collections

September 23rd, 2021

An exclusive look inside the Stowe Collections with Dr. Eddie Glaude during the ticketed outdoor event on the Stowe Center Lawn.


The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center is delighted to honor Dr. Eddie Glaude as the 2021 Stowe Prize winner. Glaude receives the award for Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own (Crown Publishing Group, 2020), a book that uses the life of James Baldwin to create dialogue about racial inequality currently in the United States. This year’s events will be both on site and virtual.


The award will be presented on Thursday, September 23, 2021 on the Stowe Center grounds along with a rare look into the Stowe Collections with Glaude, UConn Professor Jeffrey Ogbar, and Director of Collections and Research Beth Burgess. The group will discuss significant artifacts from Harriet Beecher Stowe Center’s nationally-significant collection that link collections to Baldwin’s and Glaude’s work, as well as issues of race history, historic systemic racism, to the issues of today as they relate to the fight for racial equity.



The rain date is Friday, September 24. Two exclusive audio conversations with Glaude with special guests will premiere online on Wednesday, September 1, 2021 in the Harriet Beecher Stowe Multimedia Gallery.


More details for on-site and virtual programming COMING SOON.
