Jefferson’s Daughters: Three Sisters, White and Black, in a Young America by Catherine Kerrison
A recent publication by Villanova history professor, Dr. Catherine Kerrison tells the remarkable untold story of Thomas Jefferson’s three daughters– two white and free, one black and enslaved– and the divergent paths they forged in a newly independent America.
Kerrison, a scholar of early American and women’s history, recounts the remarkable journey of these three women, through never-before-published documents written by the Jefferson family and interviews with family descendants.
Jefferson’s Daughters provides an interesting lens in which to examine the personal and political legacy of one of our most controversial Founding Fathers.
