Burke Historical Society Presents: You Will Find It Handy: Traveling Through the Old Dominion with The Green Book
Burke Historical Society Lecture Series.
Refusal of service and other threats made automobile and other travel extremely difficult for African-Americans. The Negro Motorist Green Book, published from 1936 to 1967 and renamed The Negro Travelers’ Green Book in 1952, provided a trusted guidebook to ensure safe travels. Susan Hellman's presentation highlights the over 300 Virginia sites advertised in The Green Book between 1938 and 1967.
