Program Description

Event Details

In the 20th century, it could be extremely dangerous for people of color to travel. For nearly 30 years, a guide initially called the Negro Traveler Green Book offered advice about safe places to eat and sleep and was published from 1936-1966. Learn about its role in the struggle for civil rights during this virtual slide presentation by Karen Hall, Executive Director of the Glen Ellyn Historical Society.
