  2. Founding father’s slave exhibit opens

    UNITED STATES: Thomas Jefferson wrote “all men are created equal” as a rallying cry for national liberation against Britain, yet he was a lifelong slave owner.

    That contradiction between ideals and reality is at the centre of a new exhibition opening tomorrow at Washington’s Smithsonian Institution.

    The exhibit, Slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello: Paradox of Liberty, offers a look at Jefferson’s Virginia plantation through the lives of six slave families and artifacts unearthed there.
