Safe Haven: Louisiana's Green Book II

Safe Haven: Louisiana's Green Book II

A Continuation of the Safe Haven: Louisiana's Green Book series!

The series is being shot and co-written by LPB’s Emma Reid and Kara St. Cyr, who also serves as our on-camera guide. St. Cyr learned a lot of Louisiana history working on the digital shorts and appreciates the perspective she gained about her own history, as well. “One of the most sobering aspects of this project is not that this happened at all, but that the existence of sundown towns is so recent. African Americans used The Green Book to navigate cities like Denham Springs while my parents were small children. This puts everything into perspective. I can appreciate my ancestors even more now that I understand the sacrifices they made just to live.”

The series is underwritten by ExxonMobil Baton Rouge. “There are so many Louisiana story-telling opportunities associated with the history of The Green Book,” says Stephanie Cargile, public and government affairs manager for ExxonMobil Baton Rouge. “ExxonMobil really wanted to focus on our state’s role and we knew LPB could help. It’s an important part in the history of race relations in our state.”
