By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: March 26, 2019 at 2:48 pm | UPDATED: March 26, 2019 at 2:53 pm By Dino Grandoni | Washington Post WASHINGTON – The Senate on Tuesday rejected a Green New Deal calling on the country to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels to fight climate change, with Republicans casting it as a costly, far-left idea.

The documentary takes a deeper look into the subject than the hit movie “Green Book” (nominated for five Oscars; it highlights the story of Dr. Don Shirley, a famous black pianist who traveled through the South in the 1960s and relied on the Green Book). Richen’s documentary talks about the challenges and dangers African Americans faced during segregation and how Victor Hugo Green, an African-American mail carrier from Harlem who saw black people being turned away at establishments in the 1930s, created his … [Read more...] about ‘Green Book’ documentary director says guide was ‘ingenious’
