Never Caught book discussion
February 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Linda Caldwell Epps returns to the Library to discuss the book Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge. A limited number of copies of the book will be available to borrow beginning February 1. Registration is required.
A revelatory account of the actions taken by the first president to retain his slaves in spite of Northern laws profiles one of the slaves, Ona Judge, describing the intense manhunt that ensued when she ran away.
