Green Book lecture  to be offered by registrar, professor
A lecture at the Florence County Museum on Jan. 23 will offer insight into ‘The Negro Travelers’ Green Book,’ a travel guide for African Americans from the Jim Crow era of American history.

For 30 years, The Negro Travelers’ Green Book served as a nationally respected travel guide for African Americans, providing them with advice and recommendations on safe places to eat, drink, sleep, shop, and purchase fuel when traveling in Jim Crow-era America.

The Florence County Museum invites the public to join Museum Registrar Cherish Thomas, and Dr. Meredith Love, Professor of English at Francis Marion University, for a free public lecture, as they explore the history and legacy of The Negro Travelers’ Green Book and Florence’s “Green Book” sites; including Florence’s most renowned site, the Ebony Guest House, which is still standing today.

The lecture will be held at the Florence County Museum, Thursday, Jan. 23 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
