Today, The Burton Wire will host a Google Hangout on the topic of “Black Travelers: Exploring the New Travel Class.”  Young Black Americans are now the fastest-growing travel market.

This topic has been in the headlines and all over social media. Charlise Ferguson’s article, “We Out Here: Inside the New Black Travel Movement,” which was featured on The Daily Beast, has gone viral.

The Black travel group Nomadness Travel Tribe is made up of 9,000 predominately African American globetrotters, ages 25 to 40, that live to travel.

Keeping with our mission of exploring topics related to the African Diaspora, The Burton Wire‘s editorial team has been discussing this topic heavily and you know – traveling extensively.

For our inaugural Google Hangout, we decided to discuss this burgeoning movement that holds tremendous promise for black travelers, the travel industry and global economies with those leading the black travel movement.
