Black History Month


Celebrate Black Heritage Month with the Wadsworth Atheneum at a free preview screening of “The Green Book: Guide to Freedom,” a new documentary on Victor Green and his Green Book travel guide. The Negro Motorist Green Book helped African Americans navigate safe passage across America well into the 1960s. Explore some of the segregated nation's safe havens and notorious “sundown towns” and witness stories of struggle and indignity as well as opportunity and triumph. The screening is Tuesday, February 12, 6 to 8 p.m. Info and registration at: https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07eg2pztpcd42fab3a&oseq=&c=67302f70-4661-11e3-8127-d4ae52754b78&ch=68e44810-4661-11e3-81c9-d4ae52754b78
