The co-authors of Jefferson's Children: The Story of One American Family, join us this morning and they will be speaking at the Gamble Auditorium of the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum on April 5, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. The event is presented by Odyssey Bookshop.
Jane Feldman, an award-winning photojournalist, and Shannon LaNier, a descendent of President Thomas Jefferson and his slave Sally Hemings, will speak on race, family and their complex, shared legacy as Americans. The presentation, titled “Jefferson’s Children: The Story of One American Family, the Journey Continues,” will be followed by a book signing and a chance to meet the authors.
Shannon LaNier, a ninth-generation descendant of Jefferson and Hemings, is a correspondent for the TV show Black Enterprise Business Report and the host of the popular Web series Celebrity Hustle. Feldman is a former New York City fashion photographer and an award-winning photojournalist who has dedicated much of her career to human rights.
