The Link team would like to speak to USPS employees who have connections to the Negro Motorist Green Book, the travel guide that postal worker Victor Green founded in the 1930s.

The guide, which was published regularly until 1966, listed businesses that would welcome African-American travelers. The publication inspired Green Book,” a top contender during this year’s Oscar race, as well as a play and a documentary.

If you or your family used the book, send an email to A member of the Link team will be in touch, and your comments could be included in a forthcoming story.
