Biking and Black History

Adventure Cycling Association and the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Minority Health hooked up several years ago to give us the Underground Railroad bicycle tour. You don’t have to be Harriet Tubman to travel from Mobile, Alabama to Owen Sound, Ontario. The 2,100 mile route follows the historic “Follow the Drinking Gourd” meme as a guide. FTDG was used to encode escape instructions with reference to the Big Dipper.

It looks easier than editing B-Roll.
