Ugogurl.com does not have a message board but here is a list of some very good ones!

“You oughta ask somebody”…and get the skinny on hidden beaches in Spain, the “real” Carnaval in Brazil, underground hip hop in London, and countless other travel insights from travelers who have recently returned from those destinations. Don’t re-invent the wheel!

Nomadness Tribe on facebook has over 16,000 serious black travelers in their ranks. You have to join the group to be able to post questions on their newsfeed. When I was on my way to Peru, I posted a query and got a response that next day from a couple actually traveling in Peru at the time and they gave me the 411. The next day I got a message from a black american guy who hooked me up with his adopted Peruvian family in El Carmen, the largest black township in Peru.
