In 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin was a clarion call to freedom, galvanizing public sentiment for abolition leading up to the Civil War. But today, social justice still eludes us. Inequity can be found in many areas of life. In recognition of Stowe’s bicentennial, the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center has invited the members of the Congressional Black Caucus to Hartford to continue the conversation Stowe began 160 years ago. Join the Conversation and Make a Difference
Join the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center for an interactive community-focused program, and ignite a call to action on three important issues for America:
- Achievement Gap
- The Economics of Race
- Health Disparities
Together we will create a document, a blueprint of the key actions to address these inequities and the role each of us can play in achieving justice for all Americans.
