Film and stage actress Jess Denney plays Harriet Beecher (Stowe) in the new motion picture Sons & Daughters of Thunder (now listed on IMDB.com). Harriet was first exposed to the abolitionist movement during the 1834 Lane Seminary Debates led by firebrand Theodore Weld.
"It is a matter of taking the side of the strong against the weak, something the best people have always done," she later said. Her 1852 novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" turned the tide of public opinion in favor of abolishing slavery.
