Americans of African descent have historically experienced discrimination with travel and public accommodation, especially before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. To help navigate a safe and pleasant trip, guide books were published for the African-American traveler. Of the dozen or more that were created in the 20th century, the most successful of these was The Green Book, published by Victor H. Green. In print from 1936 to 1966-7, Princeton’s own history during this era is illustrated by what was listed in The Green Book and what was not.

Join us for a presentation by Don Stryker, Board Member, Not in Our Town Princeton.
