Ruth and the Green Book at the Center for Puppetry Arts *QUICK GIVEAWAY!*

Ruth&GreenBook Title

"This story touches on a little-known moment in American history with elegance, compassion and humanity." --Kirkus Reviews

Ruth&GB, Courtesy Lerner Publishing GroupChronicling a relatively-unknown chapter in Civil Rights history, Ruth and the Green Book follows an African American family as they travel from Chicago to Alabama in the Jim Crow South of the 1950s. After being turned away from hotels, gas stations and restaurants, 8-year-old Ruth and her parents are introduced to "The Green Book," a travel guide for black motorists conceived as a response to the humiliation and violence experienced by African Americans while traveling. Using an innovative combination of puppetry and animated projections that are inspired by the book's evocative illustrations, this collaboration between Artistic Director Jon Ludwig and author Calvin Alexander Ramsey celebrates this great guidebook that helped Ruth's family, like many others, find safe routes to welcoming places and people. As part of the Teen & Adult performance series, Ruth and the Green Book is recommended for ages nine and up.Produced by special arrangement with Lerner Publishing Group.

Ruth and the Green Book runs February 7 - 26, 2012 at the Center for Puppetry Arts in the Downstairs Theater.
