Travel Expert Releases New “Green Book” That Connects Travelers to Black-Owned Hotels, Restaurants, and More Around the World


Martinique Lewis’ new book — which has been featured on CNN, Travel Noire, Travel & Leisure, Black Enterprise, Fox Soul, and Condé Nast Traveler — also includes a directory of Black wineries and distilleries, Black book stores, Black museums, and Black festivals, etc.

Oakland, CA — Martinique Lewis has released the #1 Black travel resource, The ABC Travel Greenbook, that connects travelers with communities and businesses from the African diaspora globally. The book is now available on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and across all major book retail platforms.With the Black travel movement constantly growing, and Black travelers injecting billions of dollars into the travel industry each year, the information highlighting the destinations and experiences where those travelers can see themselves reflected has been repeatedly overlooked.

After years of research, Martinique Lewis — diversity in travel consultant, creative lead of Nomadness Travel Tribe, and president of the Black Travel Alliance — has compiled this resource for Black travelers to connect with Black communities in every city and country in 6 out of 7 continents. From restaurants to recreation centers, transportation companies to Black history tours, this resource shows you all of the places search engines can’t. The ABC Travel Greenbook amplifies Black-owned businesses previously left out of major travel publications – so that they too are included in press trip itineraries, garner attention for their own television segments, and can be starred as a destination for travelers.

Inspired by Victor Hugo Green’s Negro Motorist Greenbook, this will be the first time Black travelers will have one resource that collectively lists all Black-owned businesses, neighborhoods, and online communities in every country with the aim of strengthening local economies and circulating the Black dollar. This resource was created to celebrate Black culture and serve our communities. For our allies, this resource will help you share our narratives.

Follow the book on Facebook and Instagram.
