This book tells the story of the Hemingses, whose close blood ties to Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States, had been systematically expunged from American history. Historian and legal scholar Annette Gordon-Reed traces the Hemings family from its origins in Virginia in the 1700s to the family’s dispersal after Jefferson’s death in 1826.
