April Virtual Mtg. - Slavery in America by Thomas Jefferson

COVID-19 may have interrupted our monthly in-person meetings; but it will not prevent us from hearing a wonderful presentation this month!


Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, third President of the United States and a list of other accomplishments too numerous to detail here, will address the Pasadena Civil War Round Table on Tuesday April 27 at 7:15 p.m. in a special online presentation.

Mr. Jefferson, as portrayed by Bill Barker, will be sharing his insights on slavery in America and will touch on many important issues related to that topic. With slavery being the prime cause of the U.S. Civil War, you will gain tremendous insight into how this "peculiar institution" came to hold such a grip on America.

You will be transported back in time as Mr. Jefferson shares his considerable insights into the events that transpired in America as related to slavery. You will also be able to ask Mr. Jefferson questions about the events of those days and it is certain that you will be edified and entertained by what you learn.

There is no doubt that you will be talking about this performance for many years after you see it. Invite your family and friends as they will thank you later.


Bill Barker portrays Thomas Jefferson to crowds mesmerized by his performances at Monticello, Mr. Jefferson's home. See Monticello's website: https://www.monticello.org/

This is a rare opportunity for us in California to hear Bill Barker's amazing historical interpretation of a Founding Father of our country.
