Event description

Description

Monticello: The Legacy of Slavery uses Jefferson’s Monticello to explore the dilemma of slavery and the lives of enslaved families and their descendants. Thomas Jefferson’s iconic words in the Declaration of Independence—“all men are created equal”—inaugurated a new nation defined by principles of freedom and self-government, while a fifth of the population remained enslaved. Dallas will be the first city to host the updated touring exhibition, which brings to life the story of slavery at Monticello through more than 300 objects, works of art, documents and artifacts unearthed at the storied plantation. The exhibition features new items never seen outside of Monticello, including a special feature on Sally Hemings, one of the most famous African American women in American history.
