Illinois Holocaust Museum & The Negro Motorist Green Book Exhibit

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Join CLR on a trip to Skokie, Illinois to visit the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center! During our time at the museum, we will take a docent-guided tour of The Zev and Shifra Karkomi Holocaust Exhibition, which explores pre-war European life, the rise of Nazism, the Holocaust, and the post-war experiences of Survivors. In addition, we will get a docent-guided tour of the special exhibit, The Negro Motorist Green Book. This exhibit highlights the history of the "Green Book", the annual guide that provided African-American travelers with information on restaurants, gas stations, department stores, and other businesses that welcomed Black travelers during the Jim Crow era. We will experience the Interactive 3-D Hologram Survivor Stories Exhibit too. Between these two tours, we will enjoy a delicious Italian catered lunch from Maggiano's Little Italy. There will be some time to explore the gift shop before departing. 

The cost of this trip is $78 for Center members and $98 for non-members.
