Sunday Service: The Story of Sally Hemings

February 24, 2019 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Olmsted Unitarian Universalist Church

To honor Black History month, a tribute to Sally Hemings, an enslaved African-American woman who’s believed to have had several children with one-time U.S. president Thomas Jefferson will be given at OUUC. She came into Jefferson’s household as part of an inheritance from his wife’s estate in 1774, and as a child probably served as a nurse to Jefferson’s younger daughter.

We’ll wrap up our tribute to Black History month when Vernice S. Jackson, President of the Board of Directors and Managing Director of Women in History, brings Ms. Hemings to life in full costume.
