We hope you enjoy this virtual tour for the Heinz History Center’s past exhibition, The Negro Motorist Green Book.  

The exhibition, presented in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) and award-winning author Candacy Taylor, offered an immersive look at the reality of travel for African Americans in mid-century America and how the annual guide served as an indispensable resource for the nation’s rising Black middle class.

The Negro Motorist Green Book exhibition was on view from May 13 through Aug. 13, 2023 and was made possible through the generous support of Exxon Mobil Corporation. The exhibit was sponsored by The Heinz Endowments, The Richard King Mellon Foundation, The Benter Foundation, The Burke Foundations, and The Double Eagle Foundation.
