"follow the North Star to Canada"

Feb 16, 2014

Airing Thursday, February 20 at 9pm on Rocky Mountain PBS, this program tells the story of William Still, one of the most important yet unheralded individuals of the Underground Railroad. The film details the accounts of black abolitionists, who had everything at stake as they helped fugitives follow the North Star to Canada. 

The most recent release by Bobby Watson is an inspired tribute to the theme that inspired it. Bobby Watson and the "I Have a Dream Project", Check Cashing Day,  honors the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Junior’s I Have a Dream speech.
