How fascinating is our history and thankful for so much that has not been lost and can now be preserved for the future.

I have heard of this book and it has been mentioned in some fiction books I have read.

I have a friend who actually has an original copy of one of the Green Books. It was her mother's.

Yes! I think I read about this in The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration. It is very interesting to learn about.

Thanks for the links Maya!

Yeah, I totally have. I actually directed a reading of a play based on this very subject. Previous to that, I had not heard of it. Pretty fascinating stuff.
