While Show Way is about more than the Underground Railroad Quilt Code, it relies on the idea of the code to frame the story.
When doing research for this post, I found fairly recent YouTube videos of lectures that posited the Code as a historical truth. In a Time magazine article, folklorist Laurel Horton, who has done extensive research about the Quilt Code, told a reporter she had stopped trying to convince people that the code never existed.
But as we seem to be moving ever closer to a time when facts are relative and need not be based on anything more than belief, I hope that this myth will be busted sooner rather than later. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

I felt as though my great great great great grandmother was telling me the stories of the past. Excellent work!
