A display, "The Legacy of Uncle Tom's Cabin," is open now at Burke Library. This exhibit, which coincides with the 150th anniversary of the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin
, explores the complex legacy of Harriet Beecher Stowe's influential novel. Researched and designed by the students in English 451: The Culture of the American Renaissance, the display draws upon materials from the Burke and Rare Books collections at Hamilton. Materials framing both the print history and stage and screen adaptations of the novel are featured.
