What is a Zine? "An inexpensively produced, self-published, underground publication"

Who is Victor H. Green? The Root describes Greene as "A Harlem postal worker and activist that developed a guide that would help African Americans travel throughout the country in a safe and comfortable manner." The Green Book was published from 1936-1964.
