Widescreen: See 'Green Book,' then learn about the real thing

Learn about the actual book

The title of "Green Book" refers to a travel guide published from 1936 to 1966 that told black readers where they could safely eat, drink or get a room for the night while driving across an America segregated by Jim Crow laws.

A documentary about the travel guide and some of the places that appeared within its pages is available from The Smithsonian Channel. "The Green Book: Guide to Freedom" airs at noon Saturday, March 2, on the network, and is also available from Vudu, Fandango Now, Amazon, iTunes and Google Play. Visit smithsonianchannel.com for more information.
