The Black Travel Alliance was launched on June 16th, 2020 by a group of Black Travel Content Creators from across the globe. As travel authors, bloggers, broadcasters, journalists, photographers, podcasters, social media influencers, and vloggers, they unified to amplify.
The Black Travel Alliance also aims to provide training and business support to their members, as well as hold destinations and travel brands accountable on the issue of diversity in travel marketing and storytelling. Their mission is to support Black Travel Content Creators around the world and increase their representation in the travel industry, including but not limited to employment, conferences, and media. Their three pillars of the community are alliance, amplification, and accountability.
