The Musicians' Green Book: An Enduring Legacy DVD

Celebrate the history and experiences of African American musicians, navigating segregation, while creating the foundation of Jazz, R&B and Soul. These were difficult and often dangerous times —even for renowned artists like Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Little Richard, and Sam Cooke. Like many Black Americans, they relied on Victor Hugo Green’s Negro Travelers’ Green Book, a directory of lodging, restaurants, and services where African Americans were safe and welcomed. Green’s growing “pamphlet” created a network of friends, family and fans... that became The Green Book.
