Winter holidays impacted Monticello’s free and enslaved communities quite differently, but it was a season marked by family, food, and music. Join us on Tuesday, December 14, at 1:00 p.m. ET for a live Q&A with Bill Barker, first-person interpreter of Thomas Jefferson, and Associate Curator Emilie Johnson. Barker and Johnson will discuss how families at Monticello, enslaved and free, celebrated the holidays and the (sometimes surprising) customs and traditions found on the mountaintop.
