Never Caught is a true story that examines the life of an eighteenth-century fugitive woman, Ona Judge. Historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar examines Judge’s life from enslavement with the family of Martha and George Washington, the first President of the United States, to her freedom as a runaway slave. Dunbar’s work masterfully reveals both the lure of liberty for African Americans and the grim determination of slave owners to retain their property in slaves.
