Ruth and the Green Book

Wednesday January 31, 2024 10:30 AM EST
Cost: $22

From the venue:

The Center for Puppetry Arts is proud to partner with the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum to highlight the history of the Green Book and the resilience of African Americans during the Jim Crow era.

Eight-year-old Ruth and her family are traveling from Chicago to Alabama in the 1950s. The family is turned away from hotels, gas stations, and restaurants. Finally, Ruth’s family is introduced to The Green Book. Created in response to the humiliation and violence experienced by Black Americans while traveling in the Jim Crow South, this pivotal publication was an indispensable guide for Ruth’s family and many others to find a safe, welcoming route to travel through segregated America.
