OVERGROUND RAILROAD The Green Book and the Roots of Black Travel in America

by | Read by Lisa Reneé Pitts

History • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Lisa Reneé Pitts expertly blends the personal with the historical in Taylor's deep dive into the Green Book, the iconic travel guide for Black America in the pre-Civil Rights era. Taylor expertly explores the book's hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, and beauty shops, as well as the personal memories of her stepfather and others. Pitts smoothly shifts back and forth from the Green Book's time period to describing present-day racism. Her delivery is grounded and honest throughout. The voices of those who experienced the guide's sights and sounds also sound genuine. This is a moving and enlightening audiobook with much to teach listeners about past injustices and violence against Black travelers and the demand for justice now.
