Black Travel is Essential
While Virginia is known for its history, there is so much more to discover, from beach getaways to mountain escapes. Experience genres influenced by people of color at Virginia’s music festivals, learn about Virginia’s iconic Black heroes who changed the course of history at a Black history site, or visit Black-owned businesses to eat, drink, and shop your way through vibrant towns and cities like Richmond, Charlottesville, Roanoke, Alexandria, Hampton, and Virginia Beach.

“When we travel, our awareness and humility for others is heightened. The exposure provides hope for not only ourselves, but those visions are spread throughout our communities and we begin to break the cycle of thinking in a limited way.” - Xavier Duckett
