The Thomas Jefferson Hour
ON IDEAS 89.5 HD3 – The goal of The Thomas Jefferson Hour is to tease out the truth of each topic in the tradition of Thomas Jefferson - the founding father educated in Enlightenment ideals and considered by many to be the visionary of the founding of our nation.
Humanities scholar and author, Clay S. Jenkinson, adopts the persona of Jefferson each week to comment on current events and answer questions you may have about Jefferson's thoughts on any and all topics. Clay has portrayed Thomas Jefferson for more than two decades. He is the recipient of the National Endowment for the Humanities highest award, then called the Charles Frankel Award, for his humanities-based first person interpretation methodology, and is currently the director of The Dakota Institute through The Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation.
