In “Never Caught,” historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar recounts the story of Ona Judge, one of George Washington’s former slaves.
Dunbar explores Ona Judge’s life as a runaway, as well as the Washingtons’ persistent and sometimes illegal attempts to recapture her, in a narrative that sheds new light on the U.S.’s founding father and the complex state of slavery in late 18th century America.
Dunbar will be speaking and signing books on Monday, March 20, at 7pm, at Eso Won Books. For more information, click here.
