The Green Book Project

The Toledo Museum of Art’s Master Series brings journalist Alvin Hall and photographer Jonathan Calm to open a discussion of their BBC Radio 4 documentary, The Green Book Project. Referencing the guide available to black motorists from 1936 to 1967 to help them navigate their travels safely across the South, Hall and Calm embarked on a road trip for the project, traveling from Tallahassee, Florida, to Ferguson, Missouri, capturing the stories of black Americans along the way through both photography and sound.
