The Real "Uncle Tom"

Did you know that one of America's most famous authors, Harriet Beecher Stowe, based her book "Uncle Tom's Cabin" on the experiences of a real man—the life of Rev. Josiah Henson (1789-1883)?

"Josiah Henson: The Real Uncle Tom" will take you on a visual journey from the historical Uncle Tom's cabin in Maryland, to Kentucky, and ultimately to the famous underground railroad.

Host Larnelle Harris shows you how this African-American minister went from spiritual bondage in sin to freedom in Christ; from physical bondage in slavery to political freedom and on to help other slaves to read, write, and learn a trade.

You'll also get a glimpse into the life of Harriet Beecher-Stowe (1811-1896), the

seventh child of a prominent preacher in Connecticut.

And, as a special bonus, Larnelle Harris sings the spirituals "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen" and "Great Gettin' Up Mornin'" filmed at Uncle Tom's Cabin Historic Site.

This program is from the Day of Discovery archives. Presented by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
