Black American Travel
BLACK AMERICAN TRAVEL (IN SPECIAL PARTNERSHIP WITH MIAMI BOOK FAIR)
How can Black Americans ensure their safety traveling through places in America that still have sundown towns? How has this issue evolved since the age of Jim Crow? On this special series episode of “The Future of Democracy x Miami Book Fair,” we talked with Candacy Taylor, author of “Overground Railroad: The Green Book and the Roots of Black Travel in America.” She shares her historical expertise on the Green Book and how it applies to modern day life and leisure for Black Americans.
