Uncle Tom's Cabin Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. What is "freedom"? What opportunities and responsibilities accompany freedom?
  2. What are the limits on freedom? Are limits to freedom a good thing or a bad thing? Why?
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
