The New ‘Green Book’ for South Carolina

The original Negro Travelers’ Green Book form 1936 served as a travel guide for African Americans navigating the Jim Crow South. The South Carolina African American Heritage Commission has created a new, Green Book of South Carolina, appropriately updated to work well on a smart phone. For we Rice Kingdom fixated, the map aspect highlights the historic place of rice in South Carolina from plantations, to churches, post-emancipation schools and the raid on Combahee Ferry.

 

Hat tip to Paste for writing a nice rice-centric piece on the SC Green Book which helped draw my attention.
