UO Today #675 guests: Annette Gordon-Reed & Peter Onuf

Annette Gordon-Reed, the Charles Warren Professor of American Legal History at Harvard Law School, and Peter Onuf, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation Professor (emeritus) at the University of Virginia. The two scholars of Thomas Jefferson discuss his complex private life centered at his plantation in Virginia. They consider Jefferson’s role as a slave holder while espousing opposing views on slavery as an institution. Gordon-Reed won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in History for The Hemmingses of Monticello: An American Family.
