Summary
Recognized as the leading interpreter of Thomas Jefferson's life as a planter and master and of the lives of his slaves and his descendants, Stanton presents the first attempt to pull together her most important writings on slavery at Monticello and beyond. The essays collected here address many topics, from family histories (including the Hemingses) to the temporary slave community at Jefferson's White House to stories of former slaves' lives after Monticello
