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.
The Academy Awarding winning film of the same name was criticized for not presenting the truth about what the Green Book really meant.
Join us for a documentary screening and discussion every third Sunday of the month. Presented by the Ethical NYC Ethical Action Committee.Buy tickets/get more info now
