CCAAL, Inc. and Garrison School Cultural Center In the News

Tuesday, February 14 2017

Defiant, brave and free, the great abolitionists Thomas Garrett, William Still and Harriet Tubman, along with hundreds of lesser known and nameless opponents of slavery, formed a Corridor of Courage stretching from Maryland's eastern shore through the length of Delaware to Philadelphia and beyond -- making the Underground Railroad a real route to freedom for enslaved Americans before the Civil War.



Follow The Drinking Gourd

The riverbank makes a very good road
The dead trees show you the way
Left foot, peg foot, traveling on Follow the drinking gourd

When the sun comes back and the first quail calls
Follow the drinking gourd
For the old man is waiting to carry you to freedom
If you follow the drinking gourd
