Mr. Jefferson’s Salon Series: A Conversation on Race and Democracy

September 26, 2019

Jefferson wrote the immortal words of the Declaration of Independence that have inspired people throughout the world to work for democracy. He also enslaved black men, women and children throughout his life and was convinced that when the enslaved were finally emancipated, blacks and whites could never live together. Nearly 200 years after Jefferson’s death, how has the legacy of racial slavery shaped our democracy? A panel of notable scholars will help us think through this question. They include: Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, American University professor and director of the Antiracist Research & Policy Center, Department of History and author of Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America; Dr. David Blight, Yale University, author of Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom; and Dr. Mark Lilla, professor of humanities at Columbia University and author of The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics.
 
The salon will be held at the Historic Academy of Music Theatre in downtown Lynchburg. Tickets include a post-salon reception: $32 for adults (18+); $15 for teens 17 and under and college students with student ID; reservations are suggested.
