We are Erin & Stephen of Melanin Majority and we’ve been watching the Black travel space expand, and it’s beautiful. Combined we have traveled to 27 countries & lived on 3 continents. From teaching abroad in Japan to studying abroad in Rome, we have had a variety of experiences across the globe. Through these collective experiences we were inspired to create MELANIN MAJORITY to empower globetrotters to show up to their destinations – whether it’s Santorini, Capetown, Bangkok, or Montego Bay – UNAPOLOGETICALLY MELANATED. We want them to be proud of their melanin as well as their majority status in the world, recognizing that traveling is not only a revolutionary act, but also honors their ancestors, who were courageous explorers, savvy navigators & cultural purveyors.
This site is for the travelers, wanderlusts, dreamers & doers who are spreading love and positive vibes worldwide. We curate the best creative & entrepreneurial content from stories, videos & playlists to products, deals & causes for melanated travelers in an effort to amplify their voices & inspire. We want to see this space continue to grow & become increasingly interconnected until we’re 1 billion strong. This is about building, so we can’t do it without YOU.
