    Eliza Harris, a slave whose child is to be sold, escapes her beloved home on the Shelby plantation in Kentucky and heads North, eluding the hired slave catchers. Aided by the underground railroad, Quakers, and others opposed to the Fugitive Slave Act, Eliza, her son, and her husband George run toward Canada. As the Harrises flee to freedom, another slave, Uncle Tom, is sent "down the river" for sale. Too loyal to abuse his master's trust, too Christian to rebel, Tom wrenches himself from his family.

    Uncle Tom's Cabin is centered on the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters - both fellow slaves and slave owners - revolve. This emotional novel portrays the reality of slavery while also stressing that Christian love can defeat something as damaging as enslavement of fellow human beings. Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling book in the 19th century, and second best-selling following the Bible.

    This intensely dramatic and moving novel has remained a best-selling classic since it was first published in 1852. The slaves Eliza and George make a desperate bid to escape to Canada, while Uncle Tom is sold to two successive and very different owners. Abraham Lincoln himself acknowledged the role played by this seminal text in the Civil War, the aim of which was (in part) to emancipate the slaves of the southern states.

Please be advised that this audiobook contains racial epithets of the period that may be offensive to some of today's listeners.

    "So this is the little lady that made the big war." The authenticity of Lincoln's words have been questioned, but there is no question that the work fueled the passion and prejudices of countless numbers. It is a work of overwhelming power and persuasions which has outlived even the most severe critics. Notwithstanding its contribution to the abolitionist movement, the book offers a balanced treatment; there is admiration for the best of Southern gentility and the villain is a Vermonter.

    This week in Studio 360, two contrarian takes on black history. Jeffrey Wright is stealing this season of Boardwalk Empire as a black empowerment leader who sidelines as a murderous gangster. And in American Icons, we explore Uncle Tom’s Cabin, asking how the saintly hero Uncle Tom became a race traitor. Plus, Kurt Andersen speaks with novelist Alice McDermott about the loss of faith in an Irish-American family, and a 500-year-old piece of music becomes very new again.

    Published in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin was an immediate success, was influential in securing the abolition of slavery, and established Harriet Beecher Stowe as America's first major woman novelist. With a compelling narrative and memorable characters, the novel vividly explores the relationship between slave, trader, and owner, and exposes a system in which men, women, and even children were property to be bought and sold for profit or to settle debts.
