Što ćete raditi

“The Negro Motorist Green Book” is experiencing a renaissance. The travel guide helped African Americans navigate Jim Crow laws in the South and racial segregation in the North. The “Green Book” movie won 2019 Oscar for Best Picture.

My walking tour starts at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel where I provide an overview of Green Book sites. I share stories about, i.a., Jackie Robinson who was barred from staying at the Benjamin Franklin Hotel which later listed in the “Green Book.”

As we walk along the Avenue of the Arts, we will talk about Philadelphia’s cultural heritage. Over the course of 90 minutes, we will stop at Green Book sites and points of interest including:

*National Historic Landmark where John Coltrane first heard Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker;
*Supper club that was a hangout for producers and musicians who created “The Sound of Philadelphia”;
*Green Book hotel where Coltrane, Joan Armatrading and Grover Washington Jr. recorded live albums;
*Green Book hotels where Billie Holiday stayed and was arrested;
*Legendary club where jazz and blues greats performed;
*Jazz club that paid homage to postal workers;
*Royal Theater;
*Dive bar that was the setting for the Broadway play “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill.”

The walking tour ends at the repurposed Attucks Hotel (distance: 0.7 miles). The hotel’s architectural drawings are at the Athenaeum of Philadelphia.
Other things to note
The tour will take place rain or shine so please dress appropriately.

The distance between the first stop, the Bellevue Philadelphia, and the last stop, the repurposed Attucks Hotel, is 0.7 miles.

We walk at a leisurely pace. There are two to three minutes between stops.

I am a graduate of Stanford University. My lifelong love of music, old buildings and hidden histories led me to launch All That Philly Jazz, a place-based public history project that is documenting Philadelphia’s golden age of jazz. In addition to mapping lost jazz shrines, we contextualize the social history of jazz.

My work as a cultural heritage preservationist has been recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation which twice awarded me a diversity scholarship to attend their annual conference.
