A new exhibit highlights the stories of six families who, along with many others, lived in slavery at Thomas Jefferson’s home and plantation. Flipping the script, it tells the story “through the experiences of the people who labored to make Jefferson’s lifestyle possible.” The museum is working with Monticello as part of this national tour, which hopes to facilitate conversations about the history of slavery and racial attitudes in Richmond and the nation. blackhistorymuseum.org.
