Jefferson's Children by Shannon Lanier
Book DescriptionFrom the sixth great-grandson of Thomas Jefferson and his African-American slave Sally Hemmings comes an anthology of Jefferson s living descendants. Perfect for fans of"Unbroken"and"The Boys in the Boat." Told in the style of a family photo album with a combination of photographs and interviews "Jefferson s Children"is the riveting story of Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemming s sixth great-grandson, Shannon Lanier s, travels across the country to meet his relatives from both sides of the family. The profiles contained chart the multiple perspectives of Jefferson s and Hemming s descendants, from those who embrace their heritage to those who want nothing to do with Jefferson s legacy. A fascinating picture soon emerges, one that begins with a pairing of two individuals with vastly disparate levels of power on the one side, the third president of the United States and the author of the Declaration of Independence; on the other, the woman who was his property and that ultimately represents America s complicated history with issues of diversity and race and the unusual ways in which we define family. The portraits that emerge are as generous and jumbled as America itself. "The New York Times" "" A book about American history, racial identity and the bonds of family that will help young people navigate these difficult areas. "Black Issues Book Review""
