Good episode? Give it some love!
In Driving the Green Book, broadcaster Alvin Hall and activist Janée Woods Weber drive from Detroit to New Orleans collecting powerful stories about how Black Americans used The Negro Motorist Green Book to find safe havens and travel with dignity during segregation.
You’ll hear heartbreaking moments of discrimination and fear, but also find inspiration in the stories of those who built support networks for each other and fought for equality. To understand the way forward, Driving the Green Book looks back on this critical but underreported time in history, looking into issues like institutionalized racism, urban renewal, and what has and hasn’t changed for Black Americans.
Start listening to Driving the Green Book, from Macmillan Podcasts, on September 15.
