Louisiana State Museum presents Green Book exhibit programs

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – The Louisiana State Museum is hosting programs every Thursday this month for an exhibition on “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” the guidebook that sparked the Oscar-winning film, “Green Book.”

The exhibit opened in August and ends on November 14 at the Capitol Park Museum, the only location in Louisiana to show the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service exhibit, officials said in a press release.

This week’s Green Book After Hours program focuses on civil rights in Louisiana. A “Pecha Kucha Night”, during which moderators show 20 slides and have 20 seconds to explain each one, is planned for October 14th. The third program is about the Lincoln Theater Hall of Fame Museum. The fourth is entitled “The Yellow Book: Old South Baton Rouge”.

Each program starts at 4 p.m., after which the exhibition remains open. Entry is $ 10. Tickets can be purchased at the box office or through EventBrite.
