The supine acceptance of Uncle Tom made my skin crawl when I read the story and the patronising way in which his story was told revolted me.

That this story was so much part of the abolition of slavery explains a great deal about the continued oppression of African Americans in the US so long after that event.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
