ABOUT THIS BOOK

Shannon Lanier is the sixth great-grandson of Thomas Jefferson and African-American slave, Sally Hemings. In 1998, Lanier embarked on a journey to uncover the history behind his heritage. Told from the multiple perspectives of Jefferson’s descendants, Jefferson’s Children is the story of Lanier’s travels across the country to meet his relatives from both sides of the family. The interviews and photographs contained paint a fascinating and complicated picture of a family that represents the larger family of America.
