Reading Room: UNCLE TOM'S CABIN Part 2

Depending on your sensitivity, may be NSFW...
First edition cover. Art by Rolland Livingstone.
We have already seen..
Running up large debts, Kentucky farmer Arthur Shelby faces the prospect of losing everything.
He raises money by selling two of his slaves, Uncle Tom (a middle-aged man with wife and children), and Harry (young son of maid Eliza), to Mr. Haley, a coarse slave trader.
When Shelby tells his wife about his agreement with Haley, she is appalled because she has promised Eliza that Shelby would not sell her son.

Next: As if things couldn't get worse for Uncle Tom...Enter Simon Legree!

It's retro!
It's funky!
It's Lichtenstein-style Pop Art with a Black flair, featuring a proud Black woman!
