THE ARCHITECTURE OF DEMOCRACY IN A LANDSCAPE OF SLAVERY: AN ILLUSTRATED PRESENTATION BY DR. LOUIS P. NELSON, UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA

Saturday, February 5 | 1:30 pm

Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center Annex

The University of Virginia is closely associated with Thomas Jefferson, and is an architectural testament to the enlightened visions at that time, while also being a location where slavery was practiced.

Dr. Nelson of the University of Virginia will present on the uses of architecture and landscape within this national landmark, and the intersection of these two realities, exploring Thomas Jefferson’s architectural designs and how they may reflect Jefferson’s own views of slavery.
