Tuesday, February 5
Join us for a special reading with author and playwright Calvin Ramsey. His first work, The Green Book, is a two-act play about the difficulties African-Americans faced while traveling during the Jim Crow era. The play is based on his research on The Negro Motorist Green Book, a manual that directed African-Americans to "safe" restaurants, hotels, and gas stations. His play, and his later children's story Ruth and the Green Book, both draw inspiration from the same story that inspired the Oscar-nominated film, Green Book, now in theaters.
This event is free and open to the public.
