Annette Gordon-Reed Delivers 2012 Messiah College American Democracy Lecture

Last night was a big night in American politics, but it was also a great night for history at Messiah College.  In case you haven’t heard, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Annette Gordon-Reed delivered the 2012 American Democracy Lecture.  Her lecture focused on her groundbreaking scholarship on the relationship between Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings.  I was so pleased to see Hostestter Chapel filled to capacity for this lecture. Gordon-Reed did not disappoint as she offered a historical and intellectually nuanced interpretation of the Jefferson-Hemings.  I hope to get a video of the lecture posted soon.  In the meantime, here are a few pics:
