Road trips in the early years of America meant freedom and spontaneity--if you were white. If you were black, it meant restrictions and meticulous planning. Black Americans had to travel with extreme caution and care in many parts of the country. The Green Book travel guide helped motorists know where they would be welcome to eat, rest, re-fuel, and visit. Stop in for an afternoon lunch while you learn more about The Green Book, its meaning, and its importance within American history.Library: Atascocita Branch Library
