This site also celebrates Harriet Beecher Stowe, the original creator of the book, upon which this new musical is based. It shall promote understanding of the life and work, of this extraordinary woman. Author as abolitionist, or abolitionist as author, such was her commitment to the cause of ending slavery, hers was an ongoing advocacy for human rights and racial harmony.
Words of her wisdom, insights from her intentions, struggles through her story, are of real fascination. Wife and mother first, journalist and novelist next, campaigner and speaker, thereafter, Stowe is an inspiration even now.
