Hartford, CT – Join the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center for the annual Stand Against Racism

Thursday, April 26 – Saturday,  April 28, 10 AM-4 PM and Sunday,  April 29, Noon-4 PM.

 

On the Stowe House tour, learn what compelled the author to write her most famous novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Connect the past to the present as you discuss 19th-century social issues — such as slavery and the role of women — that resonate today in the form of racism, mass incarceration, immigration or equal pay. Explore exhibits that showcase the complicated and controversial legacy of “Uncle Tom” whose name became a racial slur.

Harriet Beecher Stowe is an example of how one person can make a difference. You’ll leave feeling inspired that you too can create positive change.

Save $3 on admission when you mention the Stand Against Racism. Hartford residents admitted free of charge.

The Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities.
