Thomas Jefferson's Slaves

Loading...
"Thomas Jefferson owned over six-hundred slaves in his lifetime. This documentary provides insight into Jefferson's full enslaved community, along with the traumatic dispersal of families prior to and after his death. Sally Hemings and the large Hemings family were part of this group. But the story does not end with them. As this film unfolds, the roles that Jupiter, Burwell Colbert, Isaac Jefferson, Joseph Fossett, and others who lived in bondage on Jefferson's plantations are revealed by a senior Monticello historian, archaeologists, and historical interpreters on tours of Mulberry Row at Monticello." -- Container.
