||Influential founding father, third President of the United States, lawyer, architect, and violinist: Thomas Jefferson has long fascinated students of American history. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote, "all men are created equal, and entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Yet Jefferson himself was a lifelong slaveholder and one of the first Americans to put in print ideas about racial differences. In this program, Biography examines this complex man.
