As the Getting Word African American Oral History Project approaches its 28th anniversary, a new generation of descendants is rising. Active in education, the arts, politics, and in their communities, they share an ambition: racial and social justice.

Join us for a virtual conversation with three descendants of Monticello’s enslaved community: historian Andrew M. Davenport, artist Jabari C. Jefferson, and activist Myra Anderson.
