ABOUT THIS EVENT Sally Hemings (1773-1835) is one of the most famous—and least known—African-American women in U.S. history. For more than 200 years, Hemings’ name has been linked to former President Thomas Jefferson as his “concubine,” obscuring the facts of her life and her identity. Come and learn the real story about Sally Hemings’ and her connection to Jefferson from their descendant, Gayle Jessup White, Monitcello’s Community Engagement Officer. Jessup White and Monticello historian Niya Bates will lead a riveting discussion about Hemings’ legacy and the current Monticello exhibition about her family.
