Enjoy a special 2-hour tour focusing on the lives of the Hemings family at Monticello.
Thursday, February 1, 2018 1:30 pm
The Hemings family remains one of the best documented enslaved families in the United States. Decades of documentary research, archaeological analysis and oral histories of Hemings descendants provide related narratives of struggle, survival, and family bonds across generations. Their story echoes the history of race and slavery in America. This 1-hour, 45-minute, small-group interactive tour explores Monticello using the stories of several members of the Hemings Family. The tour includes dialogue about race and the legacies of slavery in the United States in a seated small group setting as well as exploration of the site through the lens of the Hemings family; this includes a fair amount of walking over uneven terrain.
