Welcome to the conversation!

Harriet Beecher Stowe's (1811-1896) best-selling anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852), made her the most famous American woman of the 19th century and galvanized the abolition movement before the Civil War.

The Stowe Center is a 21st-century museum and program center using Stowe's story to inspire social justice and positive change.

The Salons at Stowe programs are a forum to connect the challenging issues (race, gender and class) that impelled Stowe to write and act with the contemporary face of those same issues. The Salon format is based on a robust level of audience participation, with the explicit goal of promoting civic engagement. Recent topics included: Teaching Acceptance; Is Prison the New Slavery; Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North; Creativity and Change; Race, Gender and Politics Today; How to be an Advocate

This blog will expand the reach of these community conversations to the online audience. Add your posts and comments to keep the conversation going! Commit to action by clicking HERE to stay up to date on Salon and social justice news.

July 25 Workshop RELOCATED to Carriage House Theater

Due to an incredible number of reservations for tomorrow's "What Can You Do To Fight Intolerance?" workshop, the program has been relocated to the Carriage House Theater at 360 Farmington Avenue. Limited parking for handicapped and seniors is available at the Theater. All other attendees are asked to park at the Stowe Center or on Forest, Gillett or Woodland Streets, all of which are a short walk to the theater.

Please see the map below for the location of the Carriage House Theater in relation to the Stowe Center. Stowe Staff will be positioned along Forest Street and Farmington Avenue to guide you to the program.

We look forward to an outstanding workshop with Dr. Howe tomorrow night!
