Brown Girls DO Travel
Okay, so I wrote this post on MyBlogalicious last week about how I count Brown people when I travel and how in my own little bubble of a life I know a lot of Brown people who travel too. Of course, my bubble is pretty small when you start considering that there are 312,000,000+ people in the US, but still…we’re out there.
In honor of the Brown Girls who travel and then write about it, I’d like to dedicate this post to them (keeping in mind that my definition of Brown is about cultural diversity, identity and pride and not merely skin color). And in honor of the first travel panel that has ever been held at Blogalicious Weekend – American Airlines BlackAtlas.com presents Go Global! Taking Your Blog Around the World - I am also dedicating this post to the Brown Girl Travelistas on this panel: Johnica Reed, Julia Coney, Kiratiana Freelon and yours truly. (Am I allowed to dedicate something to myself? *Insert sheepish grin here*)
So here’s the deal. Instead of compiling a list of Brown Girls who travel-and-write-about-it, I thought it would be fun to let the Blogging Travelistas out there post their own blog links in the comments section of this post just so we can all see the variety of travel writings out in the Blogosphere and so I don’t leave anyone out. (Oh. And just in case there is a travel brand or PR agency out there that might be looking to diversify a little lot more, they can take their pick too. #win-win)
