NEWS: Dunbar’s Never Caught’ to be Adapted for Film

Congratulations Erica Dunbar!

“Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge, which is a finalist of the National Book Award, will be adapted as a film. 

“The book is written by historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar. 

“Oney “Ona” Judge, a 22-year-old slave, escaped in 1796 and was one of the slaves Washington had with him in Philadelphia (the nation’s capital at the time). 

“With the help of Philadelphia’s free black community, she escaped to freedom and was able to reside in New Hampshire as a fugitive slave for the rest of her life. 

“She notably gave post-freedom interviews to abolitionist newspapers in the mid-1800s, which is why we now know more about her than any of Washington’s Mount Vernon slaves.
