RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.”
I think you know who wrote those words, yes it was Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson also said that, “slavery was an abominable crime”.
Starting on Jan. 18, you can see the exhibition “Paradox of Liberty: Slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello” at the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia. This joint project with Monticello is the largest exhibition that the museum has undertaken.
