Sally and Tom: A Ghost Story

Published:December 7, 2012 by Brendan Wolfe

Earlier in the year, we took note of the ABC drama Scandal, which features an affair between a white president and his crisis manager, a black woman named Olivia Pope (played by Kerry Washington). Now the twitterverse is twittering because last night, finally, the show acknowledged that it is—as one writer put it, back in April—”haunted by a pair of historical ghosts: Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings. Emily Nussbaum, by the way, is the television critic for the New Yorker.
