"The Negro Motorist Green Book," an exhibition developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with award-winning author, photographer and cultural documentarian, Candacy Taylor, offers an immersive look at the reality of travel for African Americans in mid-century America and how the annual guide served as an indispensable resource for the nation's rising African American middle class and evidence of a vibrant business class. "The Negro Motorist Green Book" is made possible through the support of Exxon Mobil Corp.
