"Discovering Monticello: A Descendant’s Search for Her Family’s Lost Heritage" features special guest speaker, Gayle Jessup White. She became Monticello’s first Community Engagement Officer in 2016. She is not only a direct Jefferson descendant, but also is related to two well-documented families enslaved at Monticello – the Hemingses and the Hubbards. She’s written and spoken extensively about her work at Monticello and her family’s ties to Jefferson, his extended family and the enslaved community.

 

Join us in the GM Theater for Jessup White's lecture and Q&A session.
