Abraham Lincoln allegedly called Harriet Beecher Stowe "the little lady who started the big war" after she wrote "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in 1852. Funded by the New jersey Council for the Humanities

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in America.

In 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe published “Uncle Tom’s Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly” which helped move the conscience of the country to the imperative cause of Abolitionism. The book was included on The Library of Congress' list of books that defined America and has been called the most influential novel ever written by an American.

Harriet Beecher Stowe's story energized anti-slavery forces in the North, while provoking widespread anger in the pro-slavery South.

Performed by Kim Hanley. Kim is an actor, singer, costumer and dancer. She trained and danced from an early age with the School of American Ballet and the Eglevsky Ballet in New York, as well as with the visiting Bolshoi Ballet and Stuttgart Ballet. She credits her dance background and in-depth high school acting courses, including daily vocal labs and onstage work, for her ability to rise to any occasion when performing. She holds her AA degree from SUNY at Fashion Institute of Technology in Buying and Merchandising, as well as a BFA degree in the Restoration and History of Decorative Arts.
