What is the Green Book Project

Did you know that over 300 businesses in North Carolina were listed in the Negro Motorist Green Book? In fact, there were 327. 

Since 2017, the NC African American Heritage Commission, completed research on North Carolina’s Green Book sites.  The findings have been compiled in this interactive web portal which invites visitors to explore each site in depth through historical vignettes, stories, and images.  The project also includes a traveling and virtual exhibition produced to highlight the experiences of African American travelers during the Jim Crow era in North Carolina.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
