The Green Book

                                                   From the Collections of The Henry Ford.

The other evening I was watching a program on PBS and they mentioned a book called "The Green Book" for African - Americans back in the late 1940's.

The GREEN BOOK with its list of hotels, boarding houses, restaurants, beauty shops, barber shops and various other services can most certainly help solve your travel problems. It was the idea of Victor H. Green, the publisher, in introducing the Green Book, to save the travelers of his race as many difficulties and embarrassments as possible.”

I did a search and I came up with this site: Click here and you can view a pdf. file of the book.
