Negro Travelers’ Green Book

The Negro Travelers’ Green Book was an annually released resource designed to help African Americans travel more safely during the age of Jim Crow laws. The creator of the book, postal worker Victor H. Green, compiled recommendations for restaurants, lodging and other services that weren’t discriminatory towards African Americans based from firsthand experiences and those of colleagues. The first guide was released in 1936, covering mainly the New York area, and gradually expanded to cover most of the U.S. and some international areas by the last version released in 1966.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Signed Copy of His Nobel Peace Prize Program — The First We Have Seen With No Auction Records of Any Previously and Possibly the Only One Extant

Martin Luther King, Jr. signed program for the 10 December 1964 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, signed by King during the reception held in his honor at the American Embassy in Oslo, Norway. King, at 35 the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, signs ”Martin Luther King” on the front cover of the program. Elected president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957, an organization to provide new leadership for the burgeoning civil rights movement, King based his ideals for this organization on Christian principles and nonviolent methods of Mahatma Gandhi. As the symbolic leader of the movement to end racial segregation and discrimination through civil disobedience and other nonviolent means, he was singled out by the Norwegian Nobel Committee to receive the Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement. The card style program, in Norwegian, listing music to be performed, including a selection from Gershwin’s ”Porgy and Bess,” and the names of speakers, including King, measures approximately 5.5” x 7.5”. Light foxing, else near fine. A moving tribute to American hero, Martin Luther King. Sold for $14,032.

The book provides a moving account of successful nonviolent resistance in the 1955-56 Montgomery, Alabama bus strike amid the burgeoning civil rights movement. Here, Dr. King puts pen to paper to powerfully document in his own words what is single-handedly one of the most important moments in civil rights history, when Rosa Parks refused to surrender her bus seat in Montgomery, Alabama. Handwritten manuscript reads in full, ”(I meant the paragraph in place of first sentence of sentence paragraph 12A) / Only E.D. Nixon the signer of Mrs. Parks land – and one or two other persons were aware of the arrest when it occurred early Thursday evening. Late in the evening the word got around to a few influential women of the community, mostly members of the Women’s Political Council. After a series of telephone calls back and forth they agreed that the Negroes should boycott the buses. They immediately suggested the idea to Nixon and he readily convened in his usual courageous manner he agreed to spearhead the idea. Just before calling me Nixon had decided the idea with Rev. Ralph…” 2pp. draft measures 8.5” x 11” in black ink, with some edits in red ink. Very minor toning, else near fine condition.
