Black Travel Movement

When you’re in another land and see someone who looks just like you, there’s an understanding that happens, just with eye contact, that our presence in this place is, in itself, progress, and an experience we can pass down to our children.” — Roy Wood Jr.

While filming my show, I found utopia in countries like Rwanda, South Africa, and Zambia. Everywhere I turned, I was in the majority. I didn’t stand out. Experiencing cultures across Africa let me reconnect with my ancestors.” — Nathan Fluellen

“To travel the world is a privilege. To have the opportunity to experience my Blackness abroad is an honor.” — Skylar Kearney

  1. I love this! The only continent I’ve not been on is Africa! Once when I was in Spain, this little girl was walking with her parents, I assume, but she kept turning around looking at me. She walked straight into a mailbox. I think I look peculiar in some places that I go! I got that a lot while I was in Spain.

      I can relate to your experience. A board I have been mistaken for India Arie, and Lauren Hill. I just think of Nina Simone, and feel blessed that I am young, gifted, and black…lol I do hope you get to visit Africa. I highly recommended Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya
