Show Way

Season 16, Episode 5 of 5

Show Way traces the lineage of one family's women who began creating quilts with secret maps to freedom during the years of slavery and continued in the generations beyond as a tribute to the past. Host LeVar Burton and his family discover some items from earlier relatives, and then we meet a grandmother who inspires her grandson, family members and others with her childhood memories of surviving the Holocaust during World War II. Feature book: Show Way by Jacqueline Woodson, illus. by Hudson Talbott (Putnam).
