Travel Quips Podcast

Feb 28, 2019


This week, we celebrate pioneers in Black Travel History.  Our celebration discusses The Green Book (the Oscar winning movie vs. the documentary of a similar name vs. the ACTUAL Green Book that both the movie and documentary reference); the inventor of the yellow light; and the explorer that inspires Reyna the most!  


The story behind the ACTUAL Green Book:  How the Green Book Helped African-American Tourists Navigate a Segregated Nation

Reyna’s Travel Inspiration:  Barbara Hillary
