Double Feature: Stargazers of Africa & Follow the Drinking Gourd / Wednesday, February 21 at 11:00am

Stargazers of Africa- From the dawn of time, African people have looked to the skies above for inspiration and guidance. Stargazers of Africa is a journey connecting the stars, moon, and planets to the people across this great continent- from long ago to the stargazers of today.

Follow the Drinking Gourd- Discover how people have used the stars throughout history as a guide. Explore the African American folk song, “Follow the Drinking Gourd,” and learn how its words helped freedom-seekers on their journeys. See stars during a virtual experience thanks to the Joseph Moore Museum’s planetarium and learn more about the “drinking gourd” in the night sky.
