Monticello & the Slavery to Freedom Tour

A lot has changed since I visited Monticello decades ago.  Then, there was no recognition or acknowledgement of Sally Hemings’ significance in the story of Thomas Jefferson and Monticello.  Now there is.  From the tour names & topics to the info shared by the tour guide, the lives of the enslaved and their importance to Monticello, their home too, was openly and thoughtfully considered.
