In this panel, African-American women artists and scholars discuss what “Sally Hemings” means to them in their work and consciousness. How do the facts of history inform the artist’s creativity, and vice-versa?How can a figure about whom we know so little mean so much to so many, and why has her moment finally arrived?

Come join us for a drink and lively, inspiring discussion in the cozy gathering space at Common House, as some of America’s most original thinkers and creators share their insights.

Featuring playwright Sandra Seaton (From the Diary of Sally Hemings), multimedia artist Marisa Williamson (UVA Ruffin Distinguished Artist-in-Residence), soprano Alyson Cambridge (Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall), moderated by actor/director/writer Leslie M.
