October 18—Gayle Jessup White

Revisiting Monticello

Gayle Jessup White became Monticello’s first Community Engagement Officer in 2016. She is not only a direct Jefferson descendant, but also is related to two well-documented families enslaved at Monticello–the Hemingses and the Hubbards. A former award-winning TV reporter and anchor, Jessup White started her career at the New York Times. She’s written and spoken extensively about her work at Monticello and her family’s ties to Jefferson, his extended family, and the enslaved community.
