An annual guide created by Victor H. Green in 1936, the Green Book helped African Americans travel the country safely, and with dignity, during the time of segregation.

Featuring interviews with historians, travelers, and entrepreneurs, the documentary explores what it was like to “travel while Black” in mid-century America and how the guide served as an indispensable resource for the nation’s rising Black middle class.

Following the screening, award-winning documentarian and director of “The Green Book: Guide to Freedom” Yoruba Richen will discuss the film.
