The Green Book 

Business Directory


The Negro Motorist Green Book, first published in 1936 by Harlem postal worker Victor Hugo Green, stands as a vital artifact of American African history. During the era of Jim Crow segregation and racial discrimination, this guidebook provided Black travelers with a comprehensive directory of safe accommodations, businesses, and services across the United States. It was a necessary resource that facilitated safe journeys and offered a glimmer of empowerment in the face of systemic racism, serving as a testament to the resilience and ingenuity of the Black community during challenging times.
