The Green Book was created by Victor H. Green, a postal service worker from Harlem, N.Y., who began publishing the guide in 1936 to help African Americans avoid, as he put it, “embarrassing moments” after motorists started exploring long-distance roadways including Route 66, the nation’s first transcontinental highway. Frank Norris is a historian with the National Park Service’s National Trails office, which oversees the Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program.
