History on the Run: A Walking Tour, Following the Motorist Green Book of El Paso, TX 

Published from 1936-1966, the Negro Motorist Green Book was an essential travel guide for African Americans during the Jim Crow era. Created to help African Americans safely navigate legal and local customs as they traveled throughout the United States, the Green Book listed local establishments that would serve African Americans. The Green Book listed several businesses that were located here in El Paso. Join us on a walking tour in downtown El Paso, led by Joseph Seagrove, Historian, and explore some of the locations that were listed in the Green Book. Space is limited. To confirm your place please contact us at least 48 hours prior to the date of program, February 9. $5 member/ $10 not-yet member.
