    Overground Railroad Characters ¾ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Overground RailroadBetween 1936 and 1966 a guide called the “Green Book” was published to assist black people in finding accommodations when traveling in America Through most of this time it was published by Victor Hugo Green a postal worker from Harlem The fact that such a guide was needed is shameful but without it there would not have been a way to find food housing gas or bathrooms in most of this country The book featured black owned businesses and black friendly ones This was no small task considering the prevalence of segregation We shouldn’t be under the impression that this was a “southern problem” many businesses on 125th Street in Harlem refused to serve negroes “A huge concern for black motorists was getting stranded in a ‘sundown town’ an all white enclave that banned black people from entering after dark” “sundown towns were largely a nort
