A live online presentation by Dr. Kenya Davis-Hayes, historian and professor of history, California Baptist University. Historically, “road tripping” stood as a part of the American experience, though this pastime did not necessarily hold the same for African Americans. To compensate, Victor Hugo Green wrote The Negro Motorist Green Book which guided black travelers to safe spaces of rest and relaxation nationwide. This talk will discuss the challenges of black travel and the spaces of leisure that emerged for black travelers between the 1930s and 1960s.
