About Us – Exploring Black Culture and Heritage Worldwide
African Diaspora Tourism (ADT) is an online magazine dedicated to exploring the culture, heritage, places and influences of people of African descent, past and present around the globe. The ADT web site highlights information on how people of color, living all over the world as a result of the transatlantic slave trade and modern-day migration, are continuously shaping the cultures of North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, as well as Africa.
ADTs major objective is to enlighten and inspire cultural and heritage tourism through up-to-date information, compelling first-person travel articles, candid images, and scholarly research. In addition to bringing you a first-rate travel journal about the people and places of the global African Diaspora, ADT is committed to supporting sustainable tourism and preserving the culture and heritage in the places we explore.
With studies showing that people more now than ever are looking to learn about and immerse themselves in the history and culture of the places they visit, we feel that this project is a timely, worthwhile endeavor that serves to meet the needs of travelers, culture enthusiasts, and professionals.
We also welcome you to join our efforts! We are accepting submissions on the following topics related to the African Diaspora: tourism news, culture, music, travel, food, festivals, events, meetings and education, etc. Please become a part of our mailing list and/or send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
