    1. I would love to join and see the great impact you bring to the travel and hospitality industry. I am a black graphic designer who has 24 years of design experience and a new travel agent as of 2019 looking to utilize my advertising, design and branding skills to the travel industry.

  1. My site is all about showing African Americans engaged in Travel. We are sorely under represented in magazines, news and when we do show up, we are the housekeeping staff, a multiracial couple, the bar tender. Not saying that those service professionals don’t need their jobs or should not be represented, but what about the actual travelers.

    We also don’t want to be in the flea bite, roach coach motels. We want moderately priced to high end resorts.
