Traveling Black Women 

The Traveling Black Women Network was founded in 2015 by Nadine C. Duncan after the publication of her first travel guide, Diary of a Traveling Black Woman: A Guide to International Travel. The TBW 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 travel 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. Our guides offer an authentic view of what to expect as travelers, but more specifically as Black female traveler
