Thomas Jefferson: My Master, My Slave, My FriendUnder Laurel Clark's sensitive direction, Sutton's deeply researched script lays bare the irony of Jefferson's inspiring intellectual arguments for universal emancipation, juxtaposed against his willful blindness toward the abuses suffered by his purportedly privileged slaves. Braswell's Jupiter, a deep-thinking soul forced to sublimate his inner life in a white-dominated society, anticipates what's today called code-switching as he covertly expresses incredulity at Jefferson's hypocrisy through subtle sidelong glances and slumping shoulders.
