OVERGROUND RAILROAD THE GREEN BOOK
$35.00
"The Green Book and the Roots of Black Travel in America"

Published from 1936 to 1967, the Green Book was hailed as the "bible of black travel". During the Jim Crow years and into the civil rights movement, travel for black America was difficult and dangerous. The Green Book was an ingenious solution to horrific problems. It listed hotels, restaurants, gas stations, stores, nightclubs, and other businesses across the United States that were safe for black people to patronize. "Overground Railroad" celebrates the stories of those who advertised in the Green Book and stood up against segregation.
