FROM Candacy Taylor
Preserving Green Book sites The Negro Motorist Green Book was considered the “Bible of Black Travel,” a guide that clued African-Americans into safe roadside stops during Jim Crow. The Green Book listed more than 220 sites in LA alone, from restaurants and hotels to taverns and chicken shacks. Cultural documentarian Candacy Taylor is on a mission to document them all, coast to coast. She took our supervising producer Abbie Fentress Swanson to one of the sites still standing in South LA and discusses the importance of preserving these sites.
