Deanna Broglio stands on the balcony of one of Murphys Hotel’s historic rooms, overlooking Main Street in Murphys, California.

It could be said that Murphys Historic Hotel is a doorway to another time, but its doorway is literally from another time.

During the month of June 2018, the California Automobile Museum plans to highlight the important connection between the automobile and black history, migration, and upward mobility along with how The Negro Motorist Green Book was instrumental in helping black Americans travel safely during a time of segregation in the south (1930s through the mid-1960s). Authored by New York City mailman Victor Hugo Green, the all-important Green Book was once a helpful guide to services, areas and places (e.g. restaurants, lodging, gas stations, etc.) friendly to African Americans during a time of racial discrimination.
