Master Slave Husband Wife

An Epic Journey from Slavery to Freedom

Ilyon Woo

A captivating true story of a husband and wife who escaped slavery through daring and disguise. Ellen passed as a wealthy, disabled White man, while William posed as her slave. With a love that sustained them through danger, they traveled over 1,000 miles to freedom, dodging slave traders and even friends of their enslavers. Their tale made them celebrities and drew thunderous applause as they spoke alongside some of the greatest abolitionist luminaries of the day. But danger loomed once again as slave hunters forced them to flee the United States. This American love story challenges the nation's core precepts of life, liberty, and justice for all.
