A Rethink on Thomas Jefferson with humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson

Listen on

Episode notes

It's hard to reconcile that the author of the most central and sacred words in the American experiment—that all men are created equal—enslaved people.  Always game for a challenge (or possibly lacking the good judgment our mothers raised us to have), we've invited Jefferson scholar and host of "The Thomas Jefferson Hour" and author of the recently released "Repairing Jefferson's America" Clay Jenkinson to help us wrestle with a healthy and historically full picture of this man so deeply central to our story as a nation, in both its glory and its shame.
