Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was an author best known for her popular anti-slavery novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and lived in Cincinnati between 1832 and 1850. The new documentary is currently titled “Harriet Beecher Stowe: Her Transformative Ohio Years” and is slated for release in late 2019.

Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, a Cincinnati-based nonprofit founded in 2006, helped fund the production. The organization encompasses ideas of abolition, as well as civil rights and women’s rights. Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House accomplishes this through tours of the house in Cincinnati, lectures, discussions, and educational outreach programs for the community, teachers and students.
