The Great Migration brought millions of African-Americans to the North and the West as they left the South for safety reasons and for better opportunities. 

Many used the Green Book series of books during their travels to find lodging, restaurants, gas stations and many other businesses to patronize along the way. 

The SoCal Scene's Melvin Robert has the story of L.A.'s Green Book history and how the Great Migration became part of the SoCal Culture. 

A new episode of The SoCal Scene premieres Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Spectrum News 1.
