Follow the Drinking Gourd
February 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This planetarium show is based on the children’s book, Follow the Drinking Gourd, by Jeanette Winter. During the show, visitors will take a virtual journey back in time to learn how the constellations helped escaped slaves find their way to freedom using the Underground Railroad. This program is shown annually in honor of African-American History Month (February). After the feature program, visitors will have a look at the night sky of February.
The Robinson Planetarium is located at the eastern end of Peelle Hall on the corner of Charles and Williams streets on the Adrian College campus. For more information, see the Planetarium’s web page at http://adrian.edu/campus-life/planetarium/.
