Harriet Beecher Stowe

Celebrate early innovations and advancements brought to us by Florida women! Join us for this virtual presentation by Dr. Peggy Macdonald, noted public historian and author, as she explores a selection of their stories. Hear how Dr. Esther Hill Hawks ran the first racially integrated free school in Florida; how Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, kick-started Florida’s tourism industry with her 1873 book, Palmetto Leaves; and how Betty Mae Tiger Jumper was elected the first female tribal chair of any federally recognized American Indian tribe in the nation. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
