      EVENT DETAILS
      Documentary Viewing and Discussion

      Beloved Community of Grace Christian Church presents a viewing of The Green Book, the Smithsonian documentary. Presented through historians, business owners and individuals who experienced first-hand the phenomenon of “traveling while black” in pre-Civil Rights America, the film tells the story of Victor H. Green’s eponymously named travel guide that allowed African Americans to safely tour the country during a time of severe institutionalized racism.

      Directed by acclaimed documentarian Yoruba Richen, “The Green Book: Guide to Freedom” looks at the daily realities that African Americans faced on the road – the struggles, indignities and dangers, but also the opportunities and triumphs that were won along the way.

      Followed by a group discussion led by the Grace Beloved Community whose mission is: To be welcoming people who provide a loving space for bringing awareness and understanding of our differences so that we may "with one voice glorify God."
