Booklist

Introducing a new nonfiction series for the next generation of activists, uncovering the hidden history of The United States through an anti-racist lens.


 The true story of the men—and women—surrounding the founding of America.
 
    In the summer of 1776, when Thomas Jefferson arrived in Philadelphia to sign the Declaration of Independence, declaring that “all men are created equal,” he wasn’t alone. With him was Robert Hemings, just one of the many Black people Jefferson enslaved.
    But who was Robert Hemings?
    Discover his story and the true history of those who really helped build America. Featuring riveting interviews with historians, including Margaret Kimberley, author of Prejudential: Black America and the Presidents, The Founders Unmasked is a quest for the whole truth: the good and the bad.
Jennifer Sabin is a broadcast journalist turned author who lives in New York with her family.
 
Christopher Sebastian Parker is a professor of political science and a regular guest on MSNBC, CNN, and PBS.
