By Calvin Ramsey. African American family purchase an automobile in the 1950's and take it for a drive to Alabama, only to find it hard to be treated as regular travelers in the Jim Crow South. At an Esso Station in Georgia, the attendant shows them The Negro Motorist Green Book written by Victor H. Green. A 1949 PDF version of the Green Book is online. If you live in a town featured in the book, it would make a great lesson plan.
