Film Screening: The Levys of Monticello

Hosted By: American Jewish Historical Society

This screening of The Levys of Monticello will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker, Steven Pressman and historian, Hasia Diner.

When Thomas Jefferson died in 1826, he left behind a mountain of personal debt, which forced his heirs to sell his beloved Monticello home and all of its possessions. The Levys of Monticello is a documentary film that tells the little-known story of the Levy family, which owned and carefully preserved Monticello for nearly a century – far longer than Jefferson or his descendants. The remarkable story of the Levy family also intersects with the rise of antisemitism that runs throughout the course of American history.
