March 4, 2020

  

 

Within recent years, the Black travel movement has gained momentum with the rise of black-owned agencies aimed at making international travel both accessible and affordable. For today’s episode, we interview Dr. Christopher L. Daniels, the cofounder of Motherland Connect, a premier student travel company that empowers HBCU students and alum to travel back to Africa and around the world. During our interview, we discuss Dr. Daniels’ background in foreign policy and African governance (48:11), the lack of engagement in international affairs among Americans (52:05), what the U.S. can learn from international governments (54:41), the importance of international trade in political discussions (57:12), and the role of international community building for Black economic empowerment (1:00:20). We also have a conversation about Dr. Daniels’ motivation starting Motherland Connect (1:02:00), myths and misconceptions about international travel (1:04:05), Dr. Daniels’ favorite destinations (1:09:45), and upcoming Motherland Connect excursions (1:11:34). We close the episode by having a conversation about ways to build community between Africans and African Americans (1:14:25).
