The Green Book: Guide to Freedom

Yoruba Richen | 2019 | 1 hr

In the 1930s, a black postal carrier from Harlem named Victor Green published a book that was part travel guide and part survival guide. It was called The Negro Motorist Green Book, and it helped African-Americans navigate safe passage across America well into the 1960s. 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 triumph.Followed by a conversation with filmmakers Yoruba Richen and Su Friedrich. Free for students & PU faculty.
