This children's book tells the true story of Oney Judge, a young African American woman who was a slave in George Washington's presidential household. She liberated herself by way of a daring escape and defied his attempts to recapture her. Oney speaks to us from the pages of history: 'I escaped one night in May 1796 when the President and Miss Martha were eating their dinner'. Author Diane D. Turner gives substance to this woman whose life has been documented in the stories of our nation's history, but whose narrative very few people know. The book includes a timeline and glossary of terms to help young audiences understand more about this period of American history. It is suitable for children ages 8-12.
