In the summer of 2019, award-winning broadcaster and educator Alvin Hall and social activist and trainer Janée Woods Weber hit the road for a 12-day, 2,000 mile trip from Detroit to New Orleans. The route they drove was based on information gathered from the historic travel guide, The Negro Motorist Green Book. During segregation and Jim Crow, African American travelers all over the country relied on this annually published guide as a vital resource to navigate trips, patronize Black-owned businesses, and come together in the face of institutionalized racism. The people they interviewed shared powerful stories and memories of that time that became the center of the ten-episode, Driving the Green Book podcast.
