Kelli Gibson, graduate assistant at the Center for Historic Preservation (CHP), has created a Storymap for this website based on the Tennessee Green Book, which "listed accommodations, restaurants, and other businesses willing to serve African American travelers during segregation." The StoryMap, titled Jim Crow and the American Road Trip: Tennessee Green Book Sites, is an interactive guide through Tennessee lodgings that accomodated African Americans from the late 30s through the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The StoryMap features images of buildings and city maps, as well as narration. There is also a companion lesson plan. Learn more about Kelli's research on the Green Book on the CHP Southern Rambles blog.
