For 30 years, starting in 1936, The Green Book was the African-American Traveler's trusted travel guide. Knowing where Black vacationers and road warriors could safely spend the night, or purchase meals or buy gas was a minefield. The well-informed traveler needed confidence in potentially life or death matters. That fascinating and frightening history unfolds in Candacy Taylor's new book, Overground Railroad: The Green Book and the Roots of Black Travel in America. Meet Taylor at this free North Central College annual Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration week.
