This new drama addresses the racial tension of a period marked by Jim Crow laws and segregation, remembering an element rarely recorded in the history books: Victor H. Green’s The Negro Motorist Green Book. This manual helped guide black tourists to restaurants and residences where they could safely dine and stay overnight pre-Civil Rights Movement. When a young African-American couple and a Holocaust survivor share accommodations, the juxtaposition of local and international discrimination causes the household to share a dramatic exchange that transforms their lives.
