Aid to the Jim Crow South

Jim Crow South lasted from 1865 to the 1960s with the coming of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.  One can understand why there was a Civil Rights Movement when you know the history.  Jim Crow separated the races in the South, and created a horrible reality if you were not White.  There were some things to help the colored of the South live their life without fear.  

One of the many things created to help African Americans and other minorities during this horrific time was the Green Book.  A motorist guide.  It is hard to imagine there would be places you could not go.  This book would let the reader know what gas stations, restaurants, and hotels they could stop at safely!
