Mr. Jefferson’s Salon Series: A Conversation on Race and Democracy
September 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$15 – $32
Jefferson wrote the immortal words of the Declaration of Independence that have inspired people throughout the world to work for democracy. He also enslaved black men, women and children throughout his life. Nearly 200 years after his death, how has the legacy of racial slavery shaped our democracy? A panel of notable scholars will help us think through this question. Held at the Historic Academy of Music Theatre in downtown Lynchburg. Tickets include a post-salon reception; advance tickets highly recommended.
