Inspired by historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar’s book “Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge”, Seattle-based artist LISA MYERS BULMASH created her collage series “Manticore and the Mermaid” centering on the self-liberation of Ona Judge in 1796, an enslaved woman who escaped from George and Martha Washington and was never caught.

Congratulations to Dr. Dunbar and the fifth graders at Laurel Ridge Elementary School in Fairfax, VA who nominated Ona Judge to be honored with a historical marker near Mount Vernon in Alexandria, Virginia. The marker was recently unveiled on Juneteenth, Saturday, June 19, 2021. Ona Judge’s historical marker is the first historical marker in Fairfax County about a Black man or Black woman, and the third about women at all.
