The black travel industry has been hit hard by the economic downturn, but the industry has seen a surge in the past year.
The black market has also grown, with an estimated 500,000 to 700,000 black people making the trip to the United States each year.
Black travel agencies have also been hit harder than others by a variety of factors, according to the American Black Travel Association, which tracks the industry.
While some travel agencies focus on a certain region of the country, the industry is growing globally.
“Black travelers have a very diverse travel experience, and their travel choices are often shaped by what’s happening around them, not just what they want to see,” said Jessica Wahlberg, director of research at the association.
“This makes it hard to predict how the industry will respond to the current economic climate.”
There are a variety to the challenges black travelers face, including poor weather and travel logistics, according in an article in BlackTravel.com.
The industry is also struggling to adapt to new technology and a new wave of discrimination, the article said.
“The challenges we face in the black community have always been in terms of the racial composition of our communities, but this is a new dimension of discrimination that we’ve never seen before,” said Wahlberger.
