NYPL Presents…

Uncle Tom's Cabin Reconsidered: A Conversation with Henry Louis Gates & Margo Jefferson. Moderated by THELMA GOLDEN on Wednesday, November 29th at 7:00pm.
"Once declared worthless and dehumanizing by the novelist and critic James Baldwin, Uncle Tom’s Cabin has lacked literary credibility for over fifty years. Now, in a refutation of Baldwin, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and his co-author, Hollis Robbins, demonstrate the literary transcendence of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s masterpiece." (see NYPL for information on tickets)

HERE'S a very comprehensive and well done lesson plan with extensive LINKS, resources and activities for teaching Uncle Tom's Cabin. (this lesson was created by Ellen Greer Harris MA Program in American Studies University of Virginia)
