The Traveling Black Women Network is proud to partner with Passports and Purpose to bring your the Traveling Black Women Collection!



The Traveling Black Women Network is a travel education network curated to provide information to Black women on international travel. Our network seeks to support novice and experienced travelers with safely planning their next trip. We have a collection of travel guides, approved agents, preferred suppliers, and an online travel group to provide the education and access needed to confidently travel internationally.

Our travel guides are written by Black women for Black women. Of course you can pick up any travel guide in the world, or even google any destination, to plan your trip. But, if you’ve ever paused to ask, “What is it like for Black women?” then our travel guides are for specifically you. These guides offer an authentic view of what to expect as travelers, but more specifically as Black female travelers.
