About The Book
The untold story of Thomas Jefferson’s slave children
Beverly, Harriet, Madison, and Eston are Thomas Jefferson’s children by one of his slaves, Sally Hemings, and while they do get special treatment — better work, better shoes, even violin lessons — they are still slaves, and are never to mention who their father is. The lighter-skinned children have been promised a chance to escape into white society, but what does this mean for the children who look more like their mother? As each child grows up, their questions about slavery and freedom become tougher, calling into question the real meaning of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Told in three parts from the points of view of three of Jefferson’s slaves — Beverly, Madison, and a third boy close to the Hemings family — these engaging and poignant voices shed light on what life was like as one of Jefferson’s invisible offspring.
