While a vast scholarship exists on Monticello, the ambitious neoclassical home Thomas Jefferson designed and built in Charlottesville, Virginia, few have considered his influence on the White House. Living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue from 1801 to 1809, Jefferson was the first president to occupy the residence for his full term. In this detailed account, Conroy, author most recently of the award-winning Lincoln’s White House, combines research and storytelling to bring the period to vivid life by profiling Jefferson’s life and legacy through the lens of his presidential home, receiving dignitaries, peers, and enslaved persons alike as he worked to unify a deeply divided young nation.

During the time the Underground Railroad was helping Black slaves escape into free states, a parallel network—the Reverse Underground Railroad—was abducting thousands of free African Americans and selling them into slavery. In this compelling account of a little-known episode, Bell, who teaches Early American history at the University of Maryland, tells the story of five Black boys who were kidnapped from Philadelphia in 1825. Lured onto a boat, they were blindfolded, shackled, and transported to Mississippi. Determined to regain their freedom, the five worked together to escape and eventually returned home, where they initiated a manhunt to bring their captors to justice.

Line-up /TBA Boiler Room is closing out our year in the US with a trio of special projects from three of our historic heartlands: NYC, LA & Miami. A speed-chaser to our North American tour earlier in the year, these events will tunnel down the same rabbit-hole: blowout raves in off-club warehouse locations with some of the most important new voices in the US underground & some of its lasting diehards. These events will be broadcasted to raise their profile further. Our second stop is Miami, in collaboration with our friends at III Points. After our stage at this year's festival, we're doubling down for something even more intimate. Full line-up detail to follow very soon. Presented by III Points & Boiler Room.
