Details:In 1936, Victor Hugo Green, a Harlem postman, began publishing a guide for African American travelers modeled after a similar publication for Jewish travelers. The Green Book, as it was known, was an instant success providing black travelers of the era with information on hotels, restaurants, service stations, and other facilities where they would be welcomed. In the era of Jim Crow and "sundown towns," this knowledge was not just helpful--it could be lifesaving. The Green Book ceased publication in 1967, and the guidebook that for years had offered "travel without embarrassment" was lost to history. Few today remember its critical role in expanding horizons for African Americans. The Smithsonian Institution brings this story to life with the exhibition, The Negro Motorist Green Book. The exhibit features an immersive look at the harsh reality of travel for blacks in mid-century America and the vibrant parallel world of African American-friendly businesses that supported this travel. Visitors are transported back to a time when, if you were black, it took bravery and a Green Book to cross the country safely.
