Green Book

If you have yet to see the Oscar-winning movie Green Book, just do it.

You might think, odd title for a movie but it refers to the black (negro) travel guide written by Victor Hugo Green. These were black-safe hotels, restaurants and stores that accepted black patrons in Jim Crow areas of the south.

Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen portray real-life characters in this stunning movie. They embark on a road trip during the 1960s which shows a developing relationship between the two men from polar opposite ways of life. Much more to the plot but it’s worth exploring the movie without sharing extensive details here.

The acting is stellar. You might learn something about yourself you didn’t know before by watching this film.
