Michelle Louer will narrate, and Henry Ryder will represent Beecher. Music includes works of Haydn, Mozart, Jeffrey Van, spirituals, hymns, and protest songs from the 19th century. The story weaves words of Whitman, Lincoln, and Beecher's sister, Harriet Beecher Stowe, as it explores Beecher's forays into religious schisms, race relations, women's rights, the role of science in religion, and the role of religion in politics.
