Event description
A deeper look into the real story of Victor H. Green's "Green Book" during the Jim Crow era and beyond.

About this Event

On the heels of the Oscar winning and controversial film Green Book, this documentary takes a deeper look into the real story of The Negro Motorist Green Book during the Jim Crow era and beyond. The Green Book: Guide to Freedom tells the story of Victor H. Green’s eponymously named travel guide that allowed African Americans to safely tour the country during a time of severe institutionalized racism. The film features a wide array of experts delving into the history of The Green Book – historians, business owners and individuals who experienced first-hand the phenomenon of “traveling while black” in pre-civil rights America.
