"...illuminating...Hall pays moving tribute to the ingenuity and resourcefulness of Black Americans who hit the road, despite the dangers. This historical travelogue inspires and educates."
-- Publishers Weekly
"Alvin Hall's thrilling, deeply researched and illuminating exploration of the world of the Green Book - revealing, enraging and inspiring in equal measure - is a journey all Americans must take. Nothing tells us more about the country we have been, the country we remain in so many ways, and the country we should aspire to be."
-- Ric Burns, filmmaker
A hard-charging resurrection of Black lives in Jim Crow America. -- Kirkus Reviews
"Alvin Hall's Driving the Green Book is a tour-de-force blending exhaustive research, exquisite writing, and emotionally resonant visuals. The book is also a testament to Black resilience during the Jim Crow era, the strategic thinking that helped Black families not only endure but to prevail over tyrannical anti-Black laws, and the ingenuity that held Black communities together from east to west, north to south. This is a must-read." -- Bakari Sellers, New York Times bestselling author of My Vanishing Country
"Driving The Green Book is an extraordinary journey through history exploring Black Americans' 400 year tradition of providing safety, shelter, survival, and sanctuary for our community in our quest to live the American dream. The book is beautifully written, educational and inspiring."
-- Emil Wilbekin, Founder of Native Son
"This smart, lively, and timely book is a testament to friendship and self-discovery and a reminder that the road to racial progress has been marked by dead ends and wrong turns. And yet there are so many beautiful and brilliant stories in these pages of family joy, courage, defiance, and triumph over the many racist indignities along the North/South highways of Jim Crow America, I couldn't put the book down. Driving the Green Book is a terrific place to start your own journey to understanding the nation's recent past and to chart a course for a better future."
-- Khalil Gibran Muhammad, former Director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
