Green Book Global – About Us

About Us

Green Book Global
Black Travel Made Easy

Our Vision: To inspire and empower black travelers so they can confidently explore the world

Our Mission: To be the trusted resource of the black travel experience for every destination

Hi!! I am Lawrence and I am the founder and CEO of Green Book Global, the first ever black travel travel review. It is a travel platform that was created after I quit my consulting job of over 10 years to travel to over 30 countries and all 7 continents (including Antarctica).

As I was traveling around the world it I noticed how difficult it was to determine what racism could be  like or  what my experience would be like in a destination as a black traveler.  Knowing that other black travelers have this same concern, I created Green Book Global.

Similar to the original Negro Motorist Green Book, first published in 1936, we want to help make travel as easy as possible for the Black Traveler but on a global scale.

What makes us unique is that instead of rating activities you rate  cities. So destinations have scores and tips for categories like  Adventure, Relaxation, etc. to even what is like “Traveling While Black”. Currently, we have 5000+ travel tips from black travelers across over 400 destinations. We also offer cash back to users for booking trips with us and even pay members for leaving destination reviews.

We are also a one stop shop for you to book your flights, hotels, vacation rentals, activities and even travel insurance on our website. So please be sure to book with us on your next trip and support a 100% black-owned business.
