adapted by Ellen Geer
from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”
Long before Black Lives Matter, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” rallied abolitionists worldwide and sold more copies than the Bible. In this fresh re-telling, a dying Stowe re-examines the depth and nature of Tom, an African American who uses religion to soften the horrors of slavery and fights to keep his faith despite life’s brutalities. Ellen Geer frames a new window through which to view this tumultuous time in American history.
