When we think of our founding fathers, we often forget that a few, were themselves, Slave owners. Slave Oney Judge slipped out of President George and Martha Washington's House in Philadelphia and fled north to New Hampshire in pursuit of freedom. She was a criminal until her death because of this one decision.  Oney Judge was an assertive individual who had the courage to claim her own freedom, even if it meant defying the President of the United States.

Come to this living history event and meet Oney herself and hear her story!
