Never Caught by Erica Armstrong Dunbar

Join The Nancy Pearl book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

A startling and eye-opening look into Americas First Family, Never Caught is the powerful narrative of Ona Judge, George and Martha Washingtons runaway slave who risked everything to escape the nations capital and reach freedom.

As George Washington set up residence with his secretary and eight slaves, including Ona Judge, in Philadelphia, the temporary capital, the Founding Father circumvented a Pennsylvania law that enslaved people be set free after 6 months by sending his slaves south as their enslavement was about to expire. Though Ona Judge lived comfortably compared to other slaves, her first glimpse of freedom in Philadelphia moved her to escape. At just twenty-two-years-old, Ona became the subject of an intense manhunt led by Washington himself, who used his political and personal contacts to recapture his property.

With impeccable research, historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar weaves a powerful tale and offers fascinating new scholarship on how one young woman risked it all to gain freedom from the famous founding father.
