Oasis Spaces: The Green Book Project African American Travel in NC 1933 – 1966.

“The Negro Motorist Green Book,” published between 1936 and 1966, was both a travel guide and a tool of resistance designed to confront the realities of racial discrimination in the United States and beyond. The book listed over 300 North Carolina businesses—from restaurants and hotels to tourist homes, nightclubs and beauty salons—in the three decades that it was published. This exhibit highlights a complex statewide network of business owners and Green Book sites that allowed African American communities to thrive, and that created “oasis spaces” for a variety of African American travelers. This exhibit comes to Historic Rosedale from the North Carolina African American Heritage Commission and was funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Studies.
