Episode 113: Sojournies

March 11, 2020


Building on last week’s discussion about the Black travel movement, today’s episode focuses on what it means to make the world our classroom. Specifically, we interview Sojourner White, a MSW candidate studying international Social Work and the founder of Sojournies, a site that provides resources on traveling abroad and navigating the world as a Black woman. During the episode we learn more about Sojourner’s background and motivation for documenting her travels through Sojournies (57:20) and how she bridges academic pursuits and traveling (1:01:50). We then have a conversation about myths and misconceptions related to international travel (1:04:25) how identity shapes International interactions and experiences (1:07:00), and the unique issues and opportunities that come with being a Black woman traveling abroad (1:12:10). We close the episode by discussing Black history and culture across the globe (1:18:35), Black hair care while traveling internationally (1:22:35), Sojourner’s favorite destinations (1:26:32), what people should consider when traveling alone (1:29:35) and how graduate students can travel on a budget (1:34:40).
