Harriet Beecher Stowe and Uncle Tom's Cabin

This clip provides background on both Harriet Beecher Stowe and her influential book, Uncle Tom's Cabin. (To skip the introduction, move the video forward to 1:07).

Originally published in 1852, the book was vitally important in pre-civil-war days as an anti-slavery tool.  In recent times, however, negative views of the work (and its stereotypical characters) have overshadowed its contemporary significance.
