BBC Radio 4 has an interesting 38-minute feature entitled The Green Book, which brings "The Negro Motorist Green Book" out of the dusty pages of U.S. history. Alvin Hall traveled the country to tell the story of Harlem postal worker Victor H. Green and his yearly manual (published from 1936 to 1964) that listed hotels, restaurants, service stations and tourist homes which would serve African Americans.
