The Negro Motorist Green Book, a booklet published from 1936-1966, listed locations where African American travelers could avoid encounters of racial discrimination often associated with the Jim Crow era. Over 300 listings appeared in the publication for North Carolina during its 30 years of publication. These listings span 43 towns/cities in 34 counties.
This project space is dedicated to ongoing research of the people affiliated with North Carolina's Green Book listings, the individuals and organizations who provided food, gas, loding, and information to African Americans for safe travel through the state.
