The Negro Motorist Green-Book

1940-- As more and more Americans took to the road for business or leisure in the late 1930s, a travel agent in NYC had the idea to publish a travel guide just for African Americans. "The Negro Traveler Green-Book" listed highway hotels and restaurants where black motorists were welcome-- and where they weren't. Learn more about this striking piece of history during the 2nd annual Black PR History, in a special presentation by Judith Harrison, svp of Weber Shandwick, and chair of the PRSA Foundation.
