Green Book Club featuring author Candacy Taylor

Capitol Park Museum | Baton Rouge, LA
About this Event
Join us at the museum for a book discussion of Overground Railroad: The Green Book and the Roots of Black Travel and a virtual appearance by the author, Candacy Taylor.
Overground Railroad celebrates the stories of those who put their names in the Green Book and stood up against segregation. It shows the history of the Green Book, how we arrived at our present historical moment, and how far we still have to go when it comes to race relations in America.
This Book Club is presented in conjunction with The Negro Motorist Green Book exhibition at the Capitol Park Museum on display August 21 – November 14, 2021. Developed by SITES in collaboration with award-winning author, photographer, and cultural documentarian Candacy Taylor, "The Negro Motorist Green Book" is made possible through the support of the Exxon Mobil Corporation. Capitol Park Museum is the only place in Louisiana where you can view The Negro Motorist Green Book exhibition.
We hope you can join us! Free books are available at Red Stick Reads, 541 S. Eugene, while supplies last. Thanks to a grant from Junior League of Baton Rouge.
