In 1936, a Harlem postal worker and activist named Victor Hugo Green created a list of businesses and areas that were safe spaces for African-American travelers. Green's list was originally just made for his friends and family, but it quickly gained popularity and became a national publication. Its nameā€¦ The Negro Motorist Green-Book.

Previous to Green's publication, African-American travelers had to rely solely on word of mouth to avoid the dangers of racism and segregation on America's open roads.

Although Victor Green's publication is no longer in circulation, its mission to keep African Americans safe lives on through The Green Book Project. The Green Book Project uses crowdsourced reviews to help marginalized groups find inclusive businesses and avoid discrimination in their daily lives.
