think.kera.org 18

Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia with equality and enlightenment in mind. In reality, the citizens of the state didn’t share the same values. Alan Taylor, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how a school founded, in part, to end slavery ultimately preserved it. His new book is called “Thomas Jefferson’s Education.”
