From all over the world people flock to see Route 66, the most famous road in the world, running from Chicago to Los Angeles. It’s a road known for cruising, good times, freedom of the road. But underneath the nostalgia lies another story: the hidden Route 66.

Here we find tales of those left behind in the dust when tourists go whizzing by; the people displaced to make the road, the communities of color who could not find a place to spend the night or who had to go to the backdoor to get a sandwich!

So fasten your seat belts, and come along for an exciting ride, as we look at American history in a whole new way.
