This organization was created by Karen Akpan; Mom, Family Travel Blogger at The MOM Trotter and Travel Agent at Memory Making Getaways after noticing the lack of beautiful brown children as she traveled with husband, and children (Aiden Akpan) all over the world. She also couldn’t find a group that promoted and encouraged family travel/travel with children for children of color. She really wanted to know if children of color did indeed travel, and if they did, why wasn’t she meeting any of them as she traveled.
The group was initially named, “Black Kids Travel.” A few months after the group was created, she changed the name to “Black Kids DO Travel,” because they really, do! And the Facebook group, Instagram page as well as this blog is proof of that.
