    "I want this book to sit on the table of that person who is afraid to travel abroad or is scared to take that job in another country. I want it to remind them that black folk have been traveling and carving paths for them for generations and now it's their turn. If I could, I would literally have the book yell 'Just GO!' every single time you opened it!" Davita McKelvey - Griots Republic Magazine - Editor in Chief

    The Black Travel Movement has taken the country by storm, with young African American millennials spending more on travel than any generation before them. #BlackTravel: The Anthology is a celebration of who they are and includes travel stories and travel photos in their voice.

    "As an avid traveler, this body of work feels personal to me. There is a burgeoning community of consummate black travelers out there, and I feel honored to create something that shares their story with the community at large." - Brian Blake, Griots Republic Magazine - Director of Visual Communications

    The goal of the magazine and the book is to archive and present the first-person accounts of urban travelers who've used their travels to further their craft and to affect the lives of those around them. Through Griots Republic's media and retail organizations, as well as personal and corporate service projects, they endeavor to practice collective economics and create community in a manner that manifests positively for those they touch.

    #BlackTravel: The Anthology will begin shipping the 1st of February. Pre-orders start November 6th. You can pre-order your copy of #BlackTravel: The Anthology at
