VIDEO: Watch Christopher Jackson Perform a Letter by Benjamin Banneker for Ham4Progress #WeTellTheirStories

This piece, introduced by Renée Elise Goldsberry, was filmed inside the Federal Hall National Memorial, the site of George Washington’s inauguration. 

The new @Ham4Progress Instagram is highlighting those who have changed history but didn't make the history books in Hamilton's new series: #WeTellTheirStories. First up, Christopher Jackson recites a letter from Benjamin Banneker, a free Black man living in Boston, to Thomas Jefferson highlighting the hypocrisy of the Declaration of Independence.

This piece, introduced by Renée Elise Goldsberry, was filmed inside the Federal Hall National Memorial, the site of George Washington's inauguration.

Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre-a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.

Hamilton is available to stream on Disney Plus! Filmed at The Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016, the film transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.
