For generations, racial segregation shaped life in the U.S. Sixty-five years after the landmark Brown vs Board of Education Supreme Court decision that declared separate was not equal, watch the Smithsonian Channel’s Green Book documentary. Part travel guide and part survival guide, the Negro Motorist Green Book helped African-Americans navigate safe passage across America during the Jim Crow era of legally-sanctioned racial segregation. See the film, with a brief introduction from Dr. Jan Davidson, Cape Fear Museum’s historian.
