Black Travelers International

Looking for inspiration? Black Travelers International has a variety of travel guides, advice on accommodations, and even group trips!

Their buzzy Facebook group is also a great place to connect with like-minded travelers.

Black & Abroad

If you’re interested in adventure or luxury travel, check out Black & Abroad. This specialty travel agency has trips you won’t find anywhere else.

You can travel with a group to destinations like Colombia, Ghana, and France, or work with the team to plan a custom trip.

Diversity in Travel Scorecard

Accountability is key to improving the experience of Black travelers. Martinique Lewis, who is president of the Black Travel Alliance, puts together an annual report that assesses how the travel industry is improving access and equality, as well as how much still needs to change.

Even if you don’t work in the travel agency yourself, the report is a fascinating read. (We were also lucky enough to host Martinique in two of our markets.)

If you want to travel in the Caribbean, Mexico, or US, Soul of America’s travel guides are essential reading. Given its coverage of more than 150 destinations, this site is an incredible resource for Black travelers.

There’s also a calendar of US-based events that are of especial interest to Black travelers.

Soul of America also has coverage of other destinations, including Amsterdam, Madrid, Paris, and more.
