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.
