Uncle Tom’s Cabin
On Tuesday, we released a story by guest writer Lauren Eglen about the famous novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. In this piece Lauren explores the global and local significance of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s pioneering work. The novel spawned plays and films which were enjoyed by audiences in Hull and artefacts which can still be viewed at Wilberforce House Museum today.
