The Louisiana State Museum is presenting programming every Thursday to go with an exhibit about “The Negro Motorist Green Book” — the guidebook that sparked the Oscar-winning movie “Green Book.”
This new exhibit opened in August and ends November 14 at the Capitol Park Museum, the only Louisiana site to show the exhibition by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
This week’s “Green Book After Hours” programme is about civil rights in Louisiana. A “Pecha Kucha Night where presenters show 20 slides and have 20 seconds to explain each one is slated Oct. 14. The third program is about the Lincoln Theatre Hall of Fame Museum. The fourth is titled “The Yellow Book: Old South Baton Rouge.”
Each programme starts at 4 p.m., and the exhibit will stay open afterward. Admission is $10. Tickets can be bought at the door or through EventBrite.
