Slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello: Paradox of Liberty brings to life the story of slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello through more than 300 objects, works of art, documents and artifacts unearthed at the storied plantation.

This widely acclaimed exhibition was organized by Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. In 2012, in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the exhibition premiered at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and, due to popular demand, has since traveled to museums in Atlanta, St. Louis and Philadelphia.
