Shannon is one of these outstanding speakers who help audiences recognize their truest self and awaken to a new world community. These two are also descendants of Thomas Jefferson's family from two different lines. Martha is descended from Thomas' sister, Martha Randolph and Dabney Carr and Shannon is descended from Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings and today, they are cousins and neighbors in New York City.
