“It takes courage to change people’s hearts.”
Green Book shows a charming risky road trip from New York to the Deep South (trough a land of racial clichés). A constant companion on the journey, the Negro Motorist Green-Book. It listed businesses that served black travelers in the segregated South. The film Green Book recreates
a time not too long ago when black people were being regularly dehumanised and devalued
in ways that were upheld by the law and still serves a significant purpose to remind white audiences of the difficulties faced by those of colour.
