Safe Haven: Louisiana's Green Book: Dooky Chase's Restaurant

Episode 6: Dooky Chase's Restaurant

Today, most businesses listed in the Green Book are now closed and often forgotten… that is not the case for Dooky Chase's Restaurant. In this episode of Safe Haven, Kara St. Cyr enjoys gumbo with Stella Reese Chase and Edgar Chase III. They discuss the restaurant’s role in the civil rights movement and legacy of this world famous New Orleans establishment. The series is based off "The Negro Motorist Green Book" exhibit at the Capitol Park Museum by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and sponsored by ExxonMobil Baton Rouge.
