The Green Book

February 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This play by Calvin A. Ramsey is about a time in the 1930s through 1960s when many African-Americans were traveling by car for the first time. Their excitement was tempered by the knowledge that segregation existed and laws varied from state to state. These vulnerable citizens had to know where to find safe accommodations, restaurants, service stations and anything else they would need during their travels. Hence, the creation of The Negro Motorist Green Book, which listed places throughout the country that would welcome African-Americans. The play reveals how serious a concern safety was for Black travelers during the Jim Crow Era. When a Jewish concentration camp survivor enters the play, the complexities of the times play out.
