November 16, 2011 – Hour 1

Join us for a discussion about Harriet Beecher Stowe’s influential abolitionist novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin.  Next year is the 100th anniversary of its publication, and we’re joined by two scholars to take a closer look at the book’s legacy, from the controversial character of Uncle Tom, to the abolitionist activism of Stowe.

Joining us are:
David Reynolds, author of Mightier Than The Sword: Uncle Tom’s Cabin and the Battle for America
Annette Gordon-Reed, Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in History for her book The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family.  She is Professor of Law at New York Law School and Professor of History at the State University of New Jersey.
