This widely acclaimed exhibition brings to life the story of slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello through more than 300 objects, works of art, documents and artifacts unearthed at the storied plantation.

Organized in 2012 by Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the exhibition premiered at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and, due to popular demand, has since traveled to museums in Atlanta, St. Louis and Philadelphia. Thanks to a National Endowment for the Humanities exhibitions grant, Monticello has since expanded the exhibition with new content, including a feature on Sally Hemings.
