This project was constructed with the help and contributions of students in four classes at Lehigh University. It began in "Early American Scandals," an upper-level seminar (summer 2009) and developed through three "Jefferson-Hemings Controversy" courses: the literature seminar for advanced placement first-year students (fall 2009), the capstone senior seminar for English majors (spring 2011), and another advanced placement seminar for first-year students (fall 2012).

The students in the 2011 senior seminar each had special wide-ranging responsibility for one of the episodes as follows: Samantha Christal (4), Brian Cohen (10), Kristen Dalton (14), Stephanie DeLuca (8), Samantha Feinberg (7), Sarah Freeman (1), Samantha Gerstein (13), Elizabeth Guzzo (15), Abigail Harris-Shea (16), Elaina Kelly (2), Alexandra Neumann (5), Caroline Nype (11), Mary O'Reilly (6), Erica Prosser (3), Katie Prosswimmer (12), Kimbrilee Weber (9).
