About Uncle Tom's Cabin
Published in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin is an anti-slavery novel and was the best-selling novel of the 19th century. The book and the plays it inspired helped popularise a number of stereotypes about black people, including the affectionate, dark-skinned "mammy"; the "pickaninny" stereotype of black children; and the "Uncle Tom", or dutiful, long-suffering servant faithful to his white master or mistress.
