Shannon Lanier is sixth great-grandson of Thomas Jefferson. He is also black. How is this possible? Shannon and his family are the result of Thomas Jefferson’s union with his slave mistress, Sally Hemings. Two hundred years later, the facts are still in dispute. Jefferson’s Children is the story of Shannon’s travels across the country to meet his relatives from both sides of the family. The interviews and photographs contained paint a fascinating and complicated picture of a family that represents the larger family of America.
