BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Louisiana State Museum is presenting programs every Thursday this month to go with an exhibit about “The Negro Motorist Green Book” — the guidebook that sparked the Oscar-winning movie “Green Book.”

The exhibit opened in August and ends Nov. 14 at the Capitol Park Museum, the only Louisiana site to show the exhibition by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, officials said in a news release.

This week’s “Green Book After Hours” program is about civil rights in Louisiana. A “Pecha Kucha Night where presenters show 20 slides and have 20 seconds to explain each one is slated Oct. 14. The third program is about the Lincoln Theater Hall of Fame Museum. The fourth is titled ”The Yellow Book: Old South Baton Rouge.”

Each program starts at 4 p.m., and the exhibit will stay open afterward. Admission is $10. Tickets can be bought at the door or through EventBrite.
