Driving Through Jim Crow 

In 1936, an African American mailman living in New York City published the first ever Negro Motorist Green Book.  The book was a guide for travelling in the Jim Crow Era; primarily the Green Books served as a listing of bars, restaurants, hotels, and businesses where African Americans would not be turned away or discriminated against.  The collection of Green Books are an invaluable primary source for unlocking a deeper understanding of the African American story in US History. In this workshop, we will examine the Green Books and analyze a series of teacher developed lesson plans around them.
