The Green Book Project Report
“The Green Book Project” is a hybrid archival-ethnographic research project which seeks to give attention to and construct narratives around the various Green Book sites which sustained Black Life and Black Travel in the Hudson Valley of Upstate New York. The Negro Travelers’ Green Book was a guide for Black travelers in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean which listed over 3,000 businesses – most of which were Black-owned – where Black people could safely/most reliably exist during their travels.
