Harriet Beecher Stowe. In her followup to Uncle Tom's Cabin
, titled Dred: A Tale of the Great Dismal Swamp
, Stowe is careful to make sure every black character is supremely dignified. But they are dull as well. At least, that's how I remember it from when I read both books as a teenager (or maybe even younger). I do recall being impressed that the library's copy of Dred, if not an 1856 first edition, was close to it. Meaning, among other things, that not a whole lot of people read Dred.
