About the Event

Cost: Free

The “Green Book,” as it was commonly called, was a travel guide for African American motorists. It listed places where African Americans welcomed customers so they could “vacation without aggravation.” Christine Byron will give an overview of the history of the Green Book, started by Victor Green, and focus on places in Michigan that were listed in the travel guide from 1938 through 1966/67.
