news-hemmingsLast November, author Annette Gordon-Reed won the National Book Award for non-fiction for her groundbreaking study of Sally Hemings and three generations of her extended family The Hemingses of Monticello. On Monday, Gordon-Reed took home the Pulitzer in history for the book, which the judges called "painstaking exploration of a sprawling multi-generation slave family that casts provocative new light on the relationship between Sally Hemings and her master, Thomas Jefferson."
