A book to inspire wanderlust (or just some fun armchair travel) for young women of color.
Black Girls Take World is the global travel bible for young women of color. Packed full of insider knowledge, travel tips and tricks, plus advice on how to handle the pros and cons of traveling when you stand out, this book is the perfect accompaniment for adventurous women with a serious case of wanderlust.
Chapters include 'Why you deserve to travel' and 'How not to travel like a basic bitch', and there are also recommendations for DNA heritage tours, the top 5s for solo travel, advice on how to travel ethically, plus self-care tips to stay safe and deal with micro-aggressions abroad.
Writer and avid traveler, Georgina Lawton also incorporates her own unique travel experiences, as well as Q&As with other black female travel pioneers. As black travel continues to grow as a collective movement across the world, this book is essential reading for curious travelers seeking both adventure and solace.
