It was called the “Mother Road” and an icon path bridging Chicago and Los Angeles through the Southwest amid diners with rockabilly jukeboxes and neon-lit motels. But black travelers traveling on Route 66 from the 1930s on needed a guide known as the Green Book to help located the few motels and restaurants that would serve them. Now a photographer is hoping to bring attention to the venues along the historic Route 66 that once provided a safe haven for blacks, although many remaining buildings in places like Albuquerque sit abandoned in now poverty-stricken neighborhoods.
