Over the last decade, the annual productions of Shaping the World: Conversations on Democracy bring together Thomas Jefferson and his contemporaries with bright young minds from local classrooms. Elementary and middle school students interview Thomas Jefferson and a historical guest to hear firsthand about daily life, politics, and culture in early America. The program is filmed in conjunction with Poplar Forest’s annual “Conversations with Thomas Jefferson” event. Filmed each spring, the student interviews are used to create an educational program that is aired annually in the fall by Blue Ridge Public Television and other public broadcasting stations in Virginia.
