Introducing: Driving the Green Book

What was it really like to travel as a Black person in America during the era of Jim Crow laws and segregation? Join host Alvin Hall and producer Janée Woods Weber as they drive south from Detroit to New Orleans. Along the way, they collect powerful personal testimony from African Americans who used The Negro Motorist Green Book to negotiate travel around the country.
