ABOUT UNCLE TOM’S CABIN: AN UNFORTUNATE HISTORY
In 1852, Stowe’s novel became an overnight sensation. It sold millions of copies, became the best-selling book in America, and laid the groundwork for the Civil War and the end of slavery. However, in the decades that followed, theatrical versions distorted the novel’s message and fostered racial stereotypes. EgoPo’s provocative remounting, with a race reversed cast, revisits the original novel and invites a candid discussion of race in America.
