ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Oscar-nominated interracial road trip movie "Green Book" has spurred interest in the real guidebook that helped black travelers navigate segregated America.

With a little research, travelers can find copies of "The Negro Motorist Green Book" online and retrace the route in the movie. Travelers also can develop their own tours of sites that once provided refuge to African-Americans during Jim Crow.

In Birmingham, Alabama, the A.G. Gaston Motel is abandoned and owned by the city. The motel once was an upscale haven with a restaurant and live music for blacks seeking safety in a place known as the most segregated city in America.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, the De Anza Motor Lodge along the historic Route 66 is undergoing renovations.
