As the Getting Word African American Oral History Project approaches its 28th anniversary, a new generation of descendants is rising. Active in education, the arts, politics, and in their communities, they share an ambition: racial and social justice.
Join us for a virtual conversation with three descendants of Monticello’s enslaved community: historian Andrew M. Davenport, artist Jabari C. Jefferson, and activist Myra Anderson on February 20 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Free and open to the public, this event is part of Monticello’s annual Black History Month programming. Register here.
