After a summer of scandals, we're checking in on the Chancellor's agenda.
To the casual history student, George Washington’s views on slavery can be reduced to a single narrative: He freed his slaves. But the truth about the first president’s views may be a bit more muddled. While George Washington did own slaves –and some were freed after his death– the president’s pursuit of Ona Judge, his wife’s runaway slave, provides insight into how he felt about slavery during a turning point of our country’s history. We discuss the life of Ona Judge, and what her escape reveals about Washington’s beliefs.
