While travel can be a positive experience for many of us personally, the tourism industry has a long record of actively harming Black and brown communities. The history of travel and “discovery” is violent and filled with colonialism, forced displacement, and genocide. Today, the intersections of travel and privilege are still evident. Who has access to travel — safely, financially, physically? Who is harmed by tourism? Whose voices are represented in our industry and in media today? To travel and not look at the world through this lens is irresponsible.
