Thread Name: Origins/Meaning: Follow the Drinking Gourd
Subject: RE: Help: Follow the Drinking Gourd meanings
Slaves didn't drink from the same vessels as the white folks drink from, this they refered to as white water. Something about a gourd that makes the water in it taste cool, so they much prefered drinking from it. Barry
