    In 2021 the Harriet Beecher Stowe House’s monthly discussion series “After Uncle Tom’s Cabin: Black Voices for Justice,” will consider some of the important works by men and women in this tradition from the 19th century to our own time. After the Civil War, Harriet Beecher Stowe became increasingly concerned with women’s issues, and we’ll follow her example by examining questions of both racial and gender justice as well as intersections between the two."
