Description

Learn to find the Big Dipper and other stars in our night sky. Then, we'll go back in time to follow a family trying to escape oppression. The Big Dipper guides them through a frightful but rewarding voyage. Sing along with the slaves who used the song of the Drinking Gourd to travel north on foot from Alabama to Canada. Based on Jeanette Winters' book by the same title, this show describes the astronomy behind the slave song "Follow the Drinking Gourd."
