Dr. Christian’s Corner

Green Book won the Oscar this year for best picture at the Academy Awards. The story is a powerful commentary on part of our nation's history. It helps us remember our path and hopefully reminds us not to repeat those times.

New York City bouncer Frank "Tony Lip" Vallelonga is searching for new employment while the Copacabana nightclub, where he works, is closed for renovations. He is invited to an interview with Doctor Don Shirley, an eccentric African American pianist who is looking for a driver for his eight-week concert tour through the Midwest and Deep South. Don hires Tony on the strength of his references and with the agreement of Tony's wife, Dolores. They depart with plans to return to New York on Christmas Eve. Don's record label representatives give Tony a copy of the "Green Book," a guide for African-American travelers to find motels, restaurants, and filling stations that would serve them.

~ In Love, Rev. Christian.
