Story Central: A Visit with Oney Judge (A Chautauqua Event) In-Person
Celebrating Presidents’ Day and Black History Month, this special event invites the audience to "meet" Oney Judge, the personal slave of First Lady Martha Washington from the time George was elected to attend the Continental Congress until the end of his second term. We hear Oney as a free woman, talking about her experience at the White House, her upbringing, her run for freedom, and more.
