The Negro Motorist Green Book

202326feb11:45 am3:00 pmThe Negro Motorist Green BookField Trip to Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center

Event Details

Stone Catchers will sponsor an All-Church trip to the Illinois Holocaust Museum to tour this special exhibition 

The Green Book exhibit offers an immersive look at the reality of travel for African Americans in mid-century America, and how the guide served as an indispensable resource for the nation’s rising African American middle class. In an era of Jim Crow laws and “sundown towns” – communities that explicitly prohibited African Americans from staying overnight – “The Green Book” offered critical, life-saving information and sanctuary.

The afternoon will begin at 11:45am at First Pres for lunch. We will then travel by cars to the museum for a guided tour of the special exhibit. You will also have the opportunity to tour other areas of the museum during the afternoon.

Registration will open February 1 for this trip. Cost is $15 for adults and $10 for Children and youth. Cost includes lunch and admission to the museum.
