Uncle Tom's Cabin and the Roots of War
04-May-2011 | News-Press Release
It's the story that galvanized people and nations to rally to the cause of freedom from slavery – making it a cause worth fighting and dying for. President Lincoln is said to have called it "the book that started the great war," and within its checkered history lie roots of American race relations not only in the 19th century, but on through the 20th and into the 21st.
The only Uncle Tom's Cabin DVD made by teachers for teachers and students.
The DVD contains:
· A modern staging of George Aiken’s 1852 play version, the one most true to Stowe’s novel, adapted and condensed to run 50 minutes for use in a single-class setting.
Stowe scholars have praised this production as “intelligently designed and extremely well-acted,” “a gem of American and African American history [and] a must see for students, scholars, and serious lovers of history” and “a powerful visual and auditory experience which reveals the ongoing appeal of a story that helped cause the United States Civil War.”
