The Green Book: Historic Travel Guide for Black America Part II

The Green Book: Historic Travel Guide for Black America Part II

Stretching across the United States, sites listed in the Green Book were more than places of refuge during the segregation era. They were places where African Americans had freedom of enjoyment.

Places like Small’s Paradise in New York, Murray’s Dude Ranch in California, and Rosedale Beach in Delaware—though culturally and historically significant—have been lost to time. To save the places that are left and remember those that are gone, we look to successful preservation examples like A.G. Gaston Hotel, a Green Book site and National Treasure of the National Trust.

When we recognize the importance of these places, we remember the legacy of black entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as the racial discrimination that African Americans have experienced for centuries.
