After Uncle Tom’s Cabin: Black Voices for Justice (2021 Literature Discussion Series)

February 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

When researching and writing Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe drew on a tradition of Black Americans telling their own stories and writing against slavery. Our 2021 literature discussion series considers works of Black voices from the 19th century to the 21st century.

To kick off our 2021 discussion series we will reflect on writings by Solomon Northup, Josiah Henson, and Frederick Douglass in our discussion: The Horrors of Slavery, Told by the Formerly Enslaved.

Co-leaders: – Dr. John Getz, Professor Emeritus, Xavier University – Dr. Jerry Cline-Bailey, Associate Professor of English, Xavier University

Open to the public. $5 suggested donation, free for HBSH members.
