POSTPONED-Film Screening and Talkback: The Green Book Guide to Freedom

Event Description

In light of Governor Cooper’s state of emergency declaration and guidance regarding canceling or postponing large gatherings in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, this special event from the NC African American Heritage Commission in partnership with the Hayti Heritage Center has been postponed.

While we are disappointed not to be able to offer this experience, the health and safety of our stakeholders and guests, volunteers and staff is always our first priority. This event will be rescheduled, and we will share a new date at a future time.



Join us for a screening of The Green Book Guide to Freedom (TVPG rating: TV-PG; run time: 60 min.), a Smithsonian Channel documentary, in the NC Museum of History's Daniels Auditorium. Following the screening, Noel will moderate a panel discussion on black mobility in North Carolina during the Jim Crow era. Following the screeing, enjoy a talkback by Lisa R. Withers, Research Historian for the NC Green Book Project.
