The Green Book: Our History Through the Entertainment Lens

Sunday, February 26, 2023

The Negro Motorist Green Book has been used as a tool of resistance for African Americans as it provided tips on how to safely travel through the country. While the book is no longer published, the legacy of the book has lived on through the award-winning movie, “Green Book,” and critically acclaimed show “Lovecraft Country.” The movie and show provide the perfect opportunity to dive deeper into the history of the text that saved so many lives. Our panel will pull excerpts from the original document, share personal experiences, and discuss how our history is reflected through entertainment.
