      Talk: Alvin Hall and Jonathan Calm

      Event Description

      Join journalist Alvin Hall and photographer Jonathan Calm for a discussion of their 2016 BBC Radio 4 documentary project The Green Book. A guide published annually between 1936 and 1967, The Negro Motorist Green-Book helped black travelers find safe and welcoming businesses during an era of virulent racism and segregation.

      Inspired by this guide, Hall and Calm undertook a road trip from Tallahassee, Florida (near Hall’s hometown), to Ferguson, Missouri, recording in both photographs and audio the histories and experiences of black Americans as they navigated the cultural, political, and physical landscapes of the American South.

      Calm continues to make photographs related to this project.
