The Green Book: More Than A Guide

Saturday, February 19, 2022
10 am – 5 pm

The Negro Motorist Green Book was hailed as the “bible of Black travel”. First published from 1936 to 1967 during Jim Crow segregation, it identified state by state the establishments deemed friendly, safe, and willing to serve Black people. Join us at MOHAI as we apply a contemporary lens to segregation, Black migration, and the rise of leisure travel. Learn about Black & Tan Hall’s new digital Seattle Green Book Tour which follows the Jackson Street corridor and enjoy a special installation of oil paintings, The Black and Tan Collection.

Co-presented by The Black Heritage Society of Washington State, Black & Tan Hall, Bonnie Hopper-Artist, Chris Hopper-Producer, and The Washington State Historical Society.

Check back for a detailed schedule of the day’s events. To request accessibility accommodations, email two weeks in advance of the event.
