Slavery at Presidential Plantations

This is an excellent panel discussion on slavery at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, James Madison’s Montpelier, and James Monroe’s Highland. The Q&A at the end is also good.

The video’s description reads, ” Historians and university leaders discussed free speech and academic freedom on college campuses, and the responsibility of administrators, faculty and students when sharing ideas. They also talked about how social media has changed the nature of discourse in university settings. This was recorded at the American Historical Association annual meeting in Washington, D.C.”
