"A Practical Solution to a Horrific Problem"

"I happened to go to the Autry Museum [of the American West]. They had an exhibition on Route 66. And there was a 'Green Book' tucked away in a corner of the display. I took a photograph of it—even though it said, 'Do not photograph'—and then I went home and did research. It was a light-bulb moment."
