Lest We Forget: Sun Down Towns of Ohio

  • Columbus Metropolitan Library - Driving Park Branch 1422 East Livingston Avenue Columbus, OH, 43205 United States (map)

This February Crossing Cultures Travel and Tours is participating in/hosting two presentations - on on urban gardening/farming and the other on Ohio's historic sun down towns.

On Thursday, February 28, Crossing Cultures Travel and Tours is hosting the discussion on towns in Ohio that legally, or by social practice, excluded African-Americans from being residents within those communities at the Driving Park Library Branch. This is of note for many now due to the recent movie "Green Book" (title refers to the book that was used as a guide to non-discriminatory hospitality establishments in the US)  that includes an example of what happens when this social prohibition is violated.
