Follow the Drinking Gourd

Based on the children’s book, this show explains what the underground railroad was and how slaves could use certain stars to guide them north to their freedom.  The seemingly simple folk song holds hidden directions for the escaping slaves, which are revealed.  25 minutes.  General audience, especially children.
