Black people are hardly ever recognized as part of the image of the travel industry, merchandise, and experiences from the position of a traveler. This is about the representation of black people in travel literature specifically, but also in the art of traveling. From stepping out of your comfort zone to discover a new perspective on life to traveling for the purpose of reconnecting with your ancestry, this LibGuide offers resources about traveling for POC whose experiences and expectations challenge those of the typical traveler to which the travel industry caters.
