Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant wait for the course! We watched Robert Bell’s earlier course on “America’s Struggle Against Slavery,” which was riveting. This pilot is excellent. We’ll turn to the full-up course as soon as it is available.

Harriet Beecher Stowe and Harriet Tubman
1: Harriet Beecher Stowe and Harriet Tubman

When it comes to heroes of the antislavery movement, there are, interestingly enough, TWO pivotal Harriets. Examine Harriet Beecher Stowe’s blockbuster novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, to better understand the ways in which Stowe advanced the fight against slavery and edged America closer to the Civil War. Then, explore the more immediate and equally decisive steps taken by enslaved people and their allies to build an antislavery escape network that stretched from the bowels of the slave South all the way into British Canada, with a focus on a different Harriet—Harriet Tubman.
