Founded in the summer of 2020, The Collective is a global group of Black travel writers and reporters, lifestyle and hospitality publicists, magazine owners, TV personalities, and industry leaders who came together to navigate through the increased attention, both authentic and performative, that we received as America's new racial awakening hit the travel industry.
