Nun Funnies!

What are black and white and read all over? Nun Funnies! 

Back before Sister Act, before Nunsense, before Sister Mary Elephant and even The Flying Nun, nuns were tickling our funny bones in cartoon form. Here, originally published by the Catholic magazine Extension, are hundreds of examples, one for each day of the year (no need to take Sundays off.) Really, as many nun cartoons as the average person will need in a lifetime, all by the talented Joe Lane!

Nuns So Lovable

Negro Motorist Green Book, 1947 Facsimile Edition

In the segregated US of the mid-twentieth century, African-American travelers could have a hard time finding towns where they were legally allowed to stay at night and hotels, restaurants, and service stations willing to serve them. In 1936, Victor Hugo Green published the first annual volume of The Negro Motorist Green Book. This facsimile of the 1947 edition brings you the listings and advertisements aimed at the Black travelers trying to find their way across a country where they were so rarely welcome – plus sections on “Negro Schools & Colleges” and “Negro Newspapers”, some notes on “Green Book traveling”, and a guide to GM and Ford cars of the day (with photos!)
