Join the University of Maryland College of Arts and Humanities for a conversation with historian, Harvard Law School professor and Pulitzer Prize winner Annette Gordon-Reed. Despite scholarly opposition toward her groundbreaking book, “Thomas Jefferson & Sally Hemings; An American Controversy,” Reed published an unrelenting body of research that led to a 1998 DNA test that proved the once-rumored relationship between Jefferson and the woman he owned. Her current work continues the story of the Hemings-Jefferson family. Reed also serves as a humanities commission member for the national report, “ The Heart of the Matter.”
