🖕🏾the Oscars. We control our own narrative. Tonight. On @smithsonian_channel. (Full article on FB page. Link in bio) #BlackLileVanilla
From @theatlantic: “... And now, more than 50 years after the final, 1966–67 edition of The #GreenBook was published, a new #SmithsonianChannel documentary from the filmmaker #YorubaRichen traces the guide’s history and its ongoing significance.
#TheGreenBook: #GuideToFreedom, which airs February 25, positions Green’s ambitious project as a necessary response to #WhiteSupremacist violence—and as a community-building tool. Throughout the documentary, Richen takes great care to showcase the ubiquity of black entrepreneurship, a phenomenon that the guide both documented and bolstered. “I feel like it gives us such a window to talk about a lot of things that we don’t get to normally talk about when we are looking at the black experience,” Richen, who also narrates the documentary, said when we spoke on the phone recently. “So much of the time, our experience in history is seen through a narrow lens and understanding.” Richen’s 51-minute documentary is a generous, complex exploration of the artifact’s practical function and its cultural legacy. But it is not, of course, the first film to bring the historic guide into public consciousness. The #Oscar front-runner #Green Book, directed by Peter Farrelly, launched a critical reckoning late last year amid reports that it mischaracterized its central story. Green Book focuses largely on Tony “Lip” Vallelonga (#ViggoMortensen), a white man who learns about the existence of racism after he’s hired to drive the preeminent black pianist “Dr.” #DonShirley (#MahershalaAli) on a concert tour through the #JimCrow–era South. The film has been criticized, including by Shirley’s family, for reported inaccuracies about the musician’s life (and for its prioritization of Tony’s character). But it fails other black subjects, too—among them, Victor Green and the people whose businesses filled the pages of his book.

Did you know?
“In the 1930s, a black postal carrier from Harlem named Victor Green published a book that was part travel guide and part survival guide. It was called The Negro Motorist Green Book, and it 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.” ————————————
You can watch the documentary (written and directed by a Black woman- Yoruba Richen, pictured) on the Smithsonian Channel starting tonight at 8pm or via iTunes, Google play, Amazon instant video and more.
The Hollywood version won lots of awards last night, but if you want the version that is not White-washed, check out this amazing film tonight.
Black folks: do you remember your grandparents or parents having copies of the Green Book?—————————————
