Black, White, and Yellow Taxis: Morris County and The Green Book with Janet W. Foster

July 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join local author and historian Janet W. Foster to learn the history behind her new book, Black, White, and Yellow Taxis: Morris County and The Green Book. The first edition of the “Negro Motorist Green Book” came out in 1936, and was published annually for 30 years. New Jersey had some 581 individual businesses listed in 31 different towns, including and Madison and Morristown. Foster, in a two-year project with a team of scholars from around the state, identified local sites listed in the Green Book. Through her research into those businesses, emerges a fascinating view of African-American communities throughout the state in the mid-20th century.

Program will be held at Morristown & Morris Township Library, 1 Miller Road, Morristown, NJ 07960. FREE

Co-sponsored by Morris County Historical Society and the Caroline Rose Foster North Jersey History and Genealogy Center of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
