Michie Tavern Lectures  

OLLI at UVa in Partnership with Michie Tavern Presents
Enchanted, Empowered, & Enslaved
Anastasia, Dolley Madison, & Sally Hemings
Three Central Virginia Women


Join us at OLLI at UVa’s Michie Tavern Winter Session to learn, dine, sip, and socialize in a beautiful historic setting with award-winning local historian Rick Britton.

It’s often said that “central Virginia history is indeed American history,” and this trio of ladies certainly proves the point—they’re well-known all across the United States.
January 30th – Anastasia: Enchanted Princess of a Lost Dynasty
February 6th – Dolley Madison: Empowered First Lady of the Early Republic
February 13th – Sally Hemings: Enslaved Mistress to the Sage of Monticello

The lectures begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by a question-and-answer period at 11:15, with lunch at 11:30. The $30 fee for each event includes the lecture, lunch with the speaker, and a book signing.
NOTE: You must be an OLLI at UVa member for the spring 2020 semester to participate in the Winter Session. The registration deadline is the Friday before each lecture; no refund requests will be accepted after that day. (Maximum capacity: 75. Snow date: February 20th) Rick Britton is a Charlottesville-based historian who’s written extensively on the history of the Virginia Piedmont. He is the author of the award-winning Jefferson: A Monticello Sampler and 2015’s Virginia Vignettes: Famous Characters & Events in Central Virginia History. A much-sought-after speaker, he teaches classes on central Virginia history, conducts tours, and illustrates maps for history books.
