“The Green Book” Staged Reading

Join us for a live staged reading of Calvin Alexander Ramsey’s award-winning play, The Green Book, performed at two locations. Ramsey’s work brings the Green Book back into public consciousness through this play and through the children’s book, “Ruth and the Green Book,” which inspired the Academy Award- winning film.

Directed by David Y. Chack, The Green Book centers on an African American family who opens their home to Black travelers throughout the United States. Unexpectedly, a Jewish Holocaust survivor arrives, unveiling the commonalities of Jewish and Black experiences.
