Uncle Tom's Cabin Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

- What are the limits on freedom? Are limits to freedom a good thing or a bad thing? Why?
- Historically, what were the links between slavery and religion? What were the links between emancipation/abolition and religion? Why and how was Christianity used to justify both?
- Are there still forms of slavery in the world today? If so, what are they? Where do they exist? What can/should people do about it and why?
