As car culture developed, Americans became increasingly concerned about safety. Step into our 1950s-era driver education “classroom” and check out how early traffic safety concerns transitioned into the “driver’s ed” we know today.

MDTSEA – Lansing, MI  MDTSA has a long and proud history of involvement with Michigan driver and traffic safety and provides materials and resources for both driver education instructors and students.


Exhibit Sponsor: “The Negro Motorist’s Green Book: Racial Discrimination and the Automobile in America

The Gilmore Car Museum is proud to announce a partnership with the PNC Foundation that will offer an insightful and educational story that predates the Civil Rights era. Decades after the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment ended slavery, African Americans continued to suffer unequal treatment, especially in the South. The Jim Crow philosophy discriminated against blacks in nearly every aspect of public life, including travel. Although the roads and highways were free for all to use, doing so was not easy for blacks. The Green Book, written by Victor Green, provided guidance for African American travelers to find safe locations to sleep, eat, shop and purchase gas.

PNC (Kalamazoo, MI)   PNC Financial Services Group operations include a regional banking franchise operating primarily in nineteen states and the District of Columbia with more than 2,700 branches, online and mobile services together with 8000 ATM machines, specialized financial businesses serving companies and government entities, and asset management and processing businesses.
