The New York Public Library has developed a set of data-driven view of The Green Book information to show the routes and scenes described in the travel guides. Click here to see it.
The Green Book documentary film entitled the Green Book Chronicles will have its opening this February, reports Calvin A. Ramsey, New York/Atlanta playwright and one of the main voices behind the enterprise.
The Green Book Chronicles tells the story of African Americans and their hardships traveling in America during the times of Jim Crow. And it explains how a travel guide started by Victor Hugo Green, a black letter carrier from Harlem, relieved the uncertainty of travel. There are more than 20 annual versions of the book at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem.
