“Ona Marie Judge, Freedom Seeker”
Sankofa Tour Guide: JerriAnne Boggis
This is the true story of one young worker whose desire for freedom was greater than her devotion to the family who had enslaved her mother and was promising her a lifetime of bondage. Using her only assets, her ingenuity and the help of her friends, she was able to escape the Philadelphia household who owned her body. Ona Marie Judge Staines lived the rest of her years in a small New Hampshire town, still a fugitive but resisting re-enslavement by the wife of the first American president.
