Inspired by “The Greenbook” by Victor Hugo Green’s Negro Motorist Guide, Black travelers can again have a resource that collectively lists Black-owned businesses, neighborhoods, and online communities in every country and connect travelers to black culture, hotels, restaurants, and more around the world.
Nationwide — Martinique Lewis is set to release the #1 Black travel resource, “The ABC Travel Greenbook: Connecting the African Diaspora Globally,” connects travelers with communities and businesses from the African diaspora globally. The book is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and across all major book retail platforms.
With the Black travel movement constantly growing, and Black travelers injecting billions of dollars into the travel industry each year, the information highlighting the destinations and experiences where those travelers can see themselves reflected has been repeatedly overlooked.
After years of research Martinique Lewis, diversity in travel consultant, creative lead of Nomadness Travel Tribe, and president of the Black Travel Alliance, has compiled this resource for Black travelers to connect with many of the Black communities in cities and countries in 6 out of 7 continents. From restaurants to recreation centers, transportation companies to Black history tours, this resource shows you all of the places search engines can’t.
Martinique Lewis’ new book has been featured on CNN, Travel Noire, Travel & Leisure, Black Enterprise, Fox Soul, and Condé Nast Traveler — also includes a directory of Black wineries and distilleries, Black book stores, Black museums, and Black festivals, etc.
The ABC Travel Greenbook amplifies Black-owned businesses previously left out of major travel publications – so that they too are included in press trip itineraries, garner attention for their own television segments, and can be starred as a destination for travelers.
Inspired by Victor Hugo Green’s “Negro Motorist Greenbook,” this will give Black travelers one resource that collectively lists Black-owned businesses, neighborhoods, and online communities in every country with the aim of strengthening local economies and circulating the Black dollar. This resource was created to celebrate Black culture and serve our communities.
