The group will be reading and discussing Overground Railroad:
The Green Book and the Roots of Black Travel
by Candacy Taylor, for the next 2 months.
The Green Book, described as the “Black travel guide to America,” was published from 1936-1966. This was a time when it was often dangerous and difficult for African Americans to travel in the U.S., because Black travelers couldn’t eat, sleep, or buy gas at most white-owned businesses. The Green Book listed hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and other businesses that were safe for Black people who were traveling by car. Taylor's book, published in 2020, explores the historical role of the Green Book as well as its residual impact on our society. Her research also resulted in a traveling exhibit on The Green Book sponsored by the Smithsonian. 
Here's the schedule of conversations:
  • Mar 16, Focus on chapters, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 (pp 103-225)
