"Follow the Drinking Gourd" at Drake Planetarium

Date & Time
Sunday, February 19th at 2:00

$6.00 in advance, $7 at the door. Members free with pass.

Come join us this Sunday to celebrate Black History Month Drake Planetarium offers a wonderful story of human determination, hardship, and innovation based on the book by Jeanette Winter. Many slaves in the old south learned to get to the north by following the Big Dipper, which they called "The Drinking Gourd". Experience the plight of the slaves as they take on a dangerous journey to freedom. Search for winter constellations, learn a slave song and watch as a slave family uses the Big Dipper to escape to "freedom land."

Join us in this exciting true life adventure story. In it we combine history, astronomy, and folk lore.
