7:00 PM

Harriet Hemings was the second of Sally Hemings’s four surviving children. Sometime in 1822 she left Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, boarded a stagecoach bound for Philadelphia, and all but disappeared from the historical record. More than fifty years later, her brother, Madison Hemings, publicly told the family story of his parents, Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson, and of his three siblings.

Presented by: Catherine Kerrison who is a Professor of History at Villanova University, where she teaches courses in Colonial and Revolutionary America and women’s and gender history. She holds a Ph.D. in American history from the College of William and Mary.
