Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge

March 6, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Harvard Book Store welcomes historian and professor ERICA ARMSTRONG DUNBAR—an Organization of American Historians Distinguished Lecturer and author of A Fragile Freedom—and Pulitzer Prize–winning author ANNETTE GORDON-REED. Together they will discuss  Dunbar’s latest book, Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge.

A startling and eye-opening look into America’s First Family, Never Caught is the powerful narrative of Ona Judge, George and Martha Washington’s runaway slave. Impeccably researched, 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.
