“Don’t Forget Your Lunch” Green Book History and Craft Activity

Wa Na Wari, 911 24th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122

Head over to Wa Na Wari and make your own shoebox lunch container while you learn about the history of the Green Book!

Wa Na Wari’s artist in residence Perri Rhoden leads you through making an embellished shoebox lunch container. Take away knowledge of a time when African Americans packed lunches and coolers of food to take along on their travels from state to state by car, bus, or train.

Wa Na Wari is uplifting the story of The Negro Motorist Green Book and celebrating the exhibition’s final week! See this immersive Smithsonian exhibition at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma. And hurry, the exhibition’s last day is Sunday June 12!

Wa Na Wari is a welcoming community arts and cultural space located in the heart of Seattle’s Historic Central Area Arts & Cultural District.

The Negro Motorist Green Book was created by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in collaboration with Candacy Taylor and made possible through the generous support of Exxon Mobil Corporation. This exhibition has been locally supported by ArtsFund, Humanities Washington, and KNKX Public Radio. Public programming for the exhibition is supported by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
