With all of the traveling that we’ve done we have read countless articles, brochures and magazines. Although we have enjoyed watching television hosts like Rick Steves, Rudy Maxa, Samantha Brown and Anthony Bourdain, we have seldom seen a black host. And it has been interesting to note that these shows seldom show black travelers.
Although many of us enjoy traveling the globe, we don’t often see ourselves reflected in the mainstream media. The truth is that we have always been globetrotters. Travel is part of the lifestyle for many of us who enjoy visiting other countries as well as discovering the treasures close to our homes.
Travel connects us with our past, helps us appreciate our present and gives us hope for the future. It offers the ultimate education. As St. Augustine said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
We hope to encourage black people of all ages to get out and explore all that the world has to offer and to share those experiences; through photos, videos, blogs…..whatever it takes to leave a travel legacy.
