Follow the Drinking Gourd

Black History Month Celebration
Rev. Dr. Crystal Bujol, Rev. Scott Alexander, Susan Schmitke, and a UUFVB Ensemble! Crystal writes:

The North Star is one of the guiding lights that helped slaves escape to freedom from the southern states’ plantations and terrors of slavery. The star sits at the tip of the big dipper, and the slaves called it the drinking gourd. In 2016, Glenn Rogers, Crystal Bujol and Nancy Stiefel created a presentation based on Glenn Roger’s idea and research for a Black History Production. With assistance from Susan Schmitke, a modification of that production will be presented to the congregation this Sunday. Follow the Drinking Gourd!
