Thomas

Jefferson

Independency – 1776…

A man of contradictions, he would help define the ideals of a democratic republic and encourage the birth of a new nation. Filled with personal anecdotes of a man who spanned the 18th and 19th centuries, this presentation highlights both the private and public sides of Thomas Jefferson and the world in which he lived. The forty-five minute monologue includes historical slide images from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation. A post-performance discussion follows the presentation.

A lesson activity packet accompanies this performance.
