BLACK TRAVEL ALLIANCE

Welcome to Black Travel Alliance. A new group of Black Travel Content Creators from across the globe. Our three pillars of the community are alliance, amplification, and accountability. As travel authors, bloggers, broadcasters, journalists, photographers, podcasters, social media influencers, and vloggers, we unify to amplify.

We also aim to provide training and business support to our members, as well as hold destinations and travel brands accountable on the issue of diversity in travel marketing and storytelling.

ACCOUNTABILITY

We strive to create a world where Black people are supported and accurately represented in the travel industry. In our press release, we mentioned that we are launching the Black Travel Scorecard to evaluate destination management organizations and travel brands on not just what they say, but also what they do.
