Mapping the Green Book | National Geographic


From National Geographic.

In 1936 New York City mailman Victor Hugo Green created the first “Green Book”, a critical guidebook for African American travelers. For 30 years, the Green Book provided information on safe places and services for African Americans during the era of Jim Crow Laws. Today, social documentarian and National Geographic Grantee Candacy Taylor is documenting past and present Green Book sites in order to preserve this critical part of our history. Through photos, stories, and maps, Candacy hopes to keep these historical sites alive.
