The Green Book and Prince George's County

Saturday, September 21, 2019

"The Negro Motorist Green Book was an annual guidebook for African-American roadtrippers to give the Negro traveler information that will keep him from running into difficulties, embarrassments and to make his trip more enjoyable." This quote is by Green Book author Victor Hugo Green. Historians Ann Bruder and Susan Pearl discuss the creation and impact of his "Green Book" and the connected sites in Prince George’s County.
