The Real Green Book

Green-Book.png

Familiar with the Oscar-nominated movie? The real Green Book was published by Victor H. Green and provided lists of safe places, country wide, that traveling African Americans might patronize in the age of Jim Crow. It was in existence from 1936-1964 and Pittsfield has mention of some tourist homes.
