Two University of Missouri faculty members will present a complex composite of Thomas Jefferson by talking about his contributions and his contradictions: his philosophical ideals, his ideas about the American people he wrote and thought about, and the impact of all of this on our contemporary perceptions of him. They will engage in a conversation that will present a full view of a complex man who had a significant impact on ideas of citizenship and racial identity in the United States. 

This webinar will be held on Zoom — join the session (registration not required). 

Speakers:

Dr. Stephanie Shonekan, MU Departments of Music and Black Studies
