Sally Hemings Documentary

Let The MinorityEye help tell your story

Sarah “Sally” Hemings (c. 1773 – 1835) was an enslaved woman of mixed race owned by President Thomas Jefferson. According to the New York Times, there is a “growing historical consensus” among scholars that, as a widower, Jefferson had a long-term relationship with Hemings, and that he was the father of her six children, born after the death of his wife Martha Jefferson, who was the half-sister of Sally Hemings. Four of Hemings’ children survived to adulthood. Hemings died in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 1835. – Wikipedia
