Jefferson Series, Public Program Gallery Talk: Jefferson and Slavery 1 April 2016.Friday, 2:00PM - 3:00PM Peter Drummey

Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence, yet he also owned people as slaves. His experimental farm and garden and his architectural tests were made possible through the uncompensated labor of hundreds. While Jefferson and slavery is not the primary focus of our exhibition, it is present in every room. The curator of the show ,Peter Drummey, will explore this subject.
