Black travel businesses are booming! The Black travel movement is in full-force with no signs of stopping (nor should it). Though many Black-Americans showcase their Blackness year-round, Black History Month is an extra special time to show some love. Your fellow African-Americans, and those across the diaspora, are reclaiming our thirst to travel. As many of us are descendants of the African Diaspora, we have always been a global people. Due to colonization and slavery, it is not easy to connect to our roots and embody wanderlust when there’s a history of racism and oppression that plagues it.
Our travels allow us to reclaim our land, our history, and our people. Some of those Black travelers have even created Black travel businesses. From itineraries to group trips to accommodations for us and by us, they inspire more people to do the same. Here are Black travel businesses to support this month (and every month, but especially this month) to honor Black people in the travel world.
