Interview with Frank Norris, a historian with the National Park Service’s National Trails Office, for NPR affiliate KUAR on Clinton School Presents, a weekly dialogue of distinguished guests that visit the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, Arkansas. Nikolai DiPippa, Clinton School Director of Public Programs, sat down with Frank Norris, a historian with the National Park Service’s National Trails Office. We discussed the Green Book on the Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program. The Green Book was created by Victor H. Green, a postal service worker from Harlem New York. He began publishing the guide in 1936 to help African Americans avoid, as he put it, embarrassing moments after motorists started exploring long distance motorways including Route 66, the nation’s first transcontinental highway.
