Akjahsdkjapocryphalstoryajsdkad, but still cinematically speaking I enjoy this scene. In terms of telling stories in movies it’s pretty neat. I know it’s like beat-you-over-the-head ~foreshadowing~ but I enjoy it ;.;

And a high-pitched voice, supposedly…) I will grant you, however, Mr Jefferson gracefully skirted around one boy who clearly fishing for a Sally Hemings-related answer. (During the photo opp afterwards, he told the boy’s mom to check out Annette Gordon-Reed for more information—and you probably should too.) I suggest you definitely head up to the Grange for this annual event, if you have the chance!!
