This week's playlist is inspired by our most recent SouthBound guest, Gayle Jessup White, who traced her roots to both Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings, the slave Jefferson fathered six children with. Now White works at Monticello, Jefferson's home, where she tells her story as part of America's story. These songs are about slavery, race, and freedom -- topics that have led to some of this country's greatest, and most important, music.
