WHAT:

Private screening of THE GREEN BOOK: GUIDE TO FREEDOM

On the heels of the Golden Globe-winning major motion picture, Charter Communications and Smithsonian Channel are co-hosting a private screening of Smithsonian Channel’s THE GREEN BOOK: GUIDE TO FREEDOM. Presented through historians, business owners and individuals who experienced first-hand the phenomenon of “traveling while black” in pre-Civil Rights America, the film tells the story of Victor H. Green’s eponymously named travel guide that allowed African Americans to safely tour the country during a time of severe institutionalized racism. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Yoruba Richen, the filmmaker behind The New Black, THE GREEN BOOK: GUIDE TO FREEDOM looks at the daily realities that African Americans faced on the road – the struggles, indignities and dangers, but also the opportunities and triumphs that were won along the way. THE GREEN BOOK: GUIDE TO FREEDOM will premiere on Monday, February 25th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.

WHEN:

Doors open & Reception – 6:00 p.m.
Screening & Panel Discussion – 6:45 p.m.

Smithsonian Channel is available on Charter’s Spectrum TV ® channels 145 and 1145 in the Ohio area.
