12 September: The Green Book

In the 1930s, a black postal worker from Harlem named Victor Green published a book that would become part travel guide and part survival guide. The Negro Motorist Green Book helped African-Americans navigate safe passage well into the 1960s, and also served as a catalyst for new businesses. Explore some of the segregated nation’s safe havens and notorious “sundown towns” and witness stories of struggle and indignity as well as opportunity and innovation in this documentary, The Green Book: Guide to Freedom.
