Book CoverNearly three decades before Harriet Tubman was even born, there was an escape story about another heroine, Ona Judge. At age 22, Judge fled and left everything she knew to pursue a lifetime of freedom. As the property of President George Washington and his wife, Martha, Judge was the preferred house slave. The attempt to recapture Judge went on for years, even long after Washington’s presidency.

Come hear the only detailed account of Ona Judge, an 18th century fugitive, as author, Erica Armstrong Dunbar tells it in her book, Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge on Tuesday, February 13, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Bloomington Civic Plaza. A reception and music from the civil rights movement provided by Potter’s House of Jesus Christ Mass Choir.
