The Negro Motorist Green Book
Can you Imagine what kind of society we were living in that required us to have a special book to provide us with safe locations to stop for gas, rest, or food? Join us, Alex Primo & Asha Zuri, Thursday, January 21st at 9 pm EST(8 CST, 7 MST, 6 PST) as we discuss the wonderful creation of brother Victor H Green, the Negro Motorist Green Book.
These types of travel guides were necessary during the Jim Crow era because African Americans were subject to acts of discrimination and occasional intimidation as many businesses refused to accept them as customers. African American motorists, for example were warned to avoid sundown towns which required minorities to be outside the city limits before sundown, hence the name. African American travel could be fraught with risk and guides like the Green Book were an important resource.
Plus brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by for another Healthy Matters update.
