Professor Erica Armstrong Dunbar talked about her book Never Caught: The Washingtons' Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge, in which she recounts the life of Ona Judge, a slave owned by George and Martha Washington, whose escape initiated a manhunt ordered by the first president. In her book, the author reports that Washington was adverse to free his slaves, which, according to Pennsylvania law, was required after six months of residency in the state. Instead, Washington would send his slaves back to Virginia every six months to circumvent the law. Ona Judge remained free until her death in New Hampshire in 1848. close
