“What Freedom Means”: Oney Judge, Personal Maidservant to Martha Washington
Sheila Arnold, historic character presenter, shares the life of Oney Judge as Martha Washington’s maidservant from age 10 until the end of George Washington’s second term of his presidency and into her new adventure of freedom. Arnold’s work as a George Washington’s Mount Vernon Research Fellow has increased her knowledge about the complicated intimacy of Oney and Martha, and enhanced Arnold’s understanding of other enslaved persons connected to Oney.
