Ona Judge, an enslaved woman in George Washington’s household, escaped to find freedom in New England. She was pursued by an intense manhunt led by Washington. Come and discuss the story of Ona Judge and the larger themes of resilience, strength, and humanity commemorated throughout Juneteenth. The event is sponsored by the Newark Public Library and New Jersey Historical Society.
