Much has been written about Thomas Jefferson and his impact, but what did African Americans think about this founding father? Join us for a thought-provoking Zoom conversation with Mia Bay—a leading scholar of African American history—about her current book project on Jefferson. Bay is in residence at Washington College this academic year, as the 2021-2022 Patrick Henry History Fellow.

Director and Historian Adam Goodheart from the Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience will chat virtually with Bay about her current work, as well as her other fascinating research on the history of race and transportation, race and retail, and her recent documentary work with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. A Q & A session for audience members will follow the discussion.
