Rosa Parks

sitting undisturbed on a bus

in Montogmery, Alabama, in 1956,

a little over a year

after her seminal act of defiance

triggered the civil rights movement

and turned the segregation in the south

into an international scandal.

 

Ms Parks, pictured left in her 80s,

died yesterday aged 92

The Green Book /  'The Bible of Black Travel'

The Negro Motorist Green Book

 

Listed in the slim little book

were motels, diners,

even gas stations

that were black-owned or black-friendly.

 

Postal worker Victor H. Green

wrote and published the guide.

 

He initially focused on his town— Harlem —

but eventually the books expanded

to cover almost every state.

 

These word-of-mouth suggestions

for safe passage through a sometimes-hostile America were,

"sort of a 20th Century version of the Underground Railroad,

and this annual travel guide was the Bible of black travel,"

says Brent Leggs, the director

of the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund.
