The Negro Motorist Green Book (at times styled The Negro Motorist Green-Book or titled The Negro Traveler's Green Book) was an annual guidebook for African-American road trippers, commonly referred to simply as the Green Book. It was originated and published by New York City mailman Victor H. Green in the United States from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era, when open and often legally prescribed discrimination against non-whites was widespread.
The Green Book listed establishments across the U.S. that welcomed blacks during a time when segregation and Jim Crow laws often made travel difficult. Source: ‘Green Book’ Helped Keep African Americans Safe on the Road | Soul Food Junkies | Independent Lens | PBS
