Just interviewed Jared A. Brock, Christian author of Road to Dawn, the story of Josiah Henson, the real-life inspiration for the character of Uncle Tom in Harriett Beecher Stowe’s 1851 novel. If you’ve read Uncle Tom’s Cabin, you know that the title character has nothing to do with the racist label “Uncle Tom.” Henson’s sufferings as a slave and his eventual escape read better than a novel, and Brock has done a superb job of painting the 19th-century slave system in all its cruel manipulation and inhuman brutality.
