The Green Book


Today 5pm - 5:40pm BBC Radio 4 FM, BBC Radio 4 LW


For black motorists in the mid-twentieth century, The Green Book was a catalogue of refuge and tolerance in a hostile and intolerant world. It listed hotels, restaurants, bars and service stations which would serve African Americans. Alvin Hall hits the highway, Green Book in hand, to document a little-known aspect of racial segregation.
