If Black girls didn’t feel like they belonged in the travel space before, they may likely feel a sense of belonging now. We’re seeing more melanin than ever as Black women live their best lives abroad, whether through solo travel, girls trips or baecations. Black travel, in general, is now so pervasive that in 2023, the Black Travel Summit declared Nov. 11 National Black Travel Day. Also, in 2019, Black Americans spent an estimated $109 billion on leisure travel, accounting for around 13% of all travelers.
