“The Negro Motorist Green Book” looks at the reality of travel for African Americans in mid-century America and how this annual guide served as an indispensable resource for the nation’s rising African American middle class. This special exhibit includes artifacts from business signs and postcards to historic footage, images and firsthand accounts to convey not only the apprehension felt by African American travelers, but also the resilience, innovation and elegance of people choosing to live a full American existence.

The Carter Library will also celebrate Juneteenth with a Family Event on Saturday, June 15th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Join us for free activities in our lobby, theater presentations, and outdoor activities!

Ages 16 and under are always FREE at the Carter Library, with regular admission of $12, discounted admission of $10 for students and seniors, and free admission for active military personnel and their families through the Blue Star Museum program.

This exhibition was developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with award-winning author, photographer and cultural documentarian, Candacy Taylor. The exhibition, made possible through the support of Exxon Mobil Corporation, will be on view from March 30 to June 23, 2024 (9:30 am to 4:30 p.m. daily).
