(Where) Who in the world is Greg?
Travel runs in my blood. My elders criss-crossed America on trains. Navy Seabees and merchant seamen in my family sailed the world’s great oceans. When I got my first passport, my hands shook.
I soon learned, though, that to many of my peers growing up, seeing the world was something Black people didn’t do, a distant dream beyond their reach.
In 2009, I created a blog designed to encourage Black Americans to go beyond the bounds of their block and their country. It was called “I’m Black and I Travel!.” It soon won national honors and an international readership.
Eventually, however, I realized that encouraging people to travel was not enough. I had to enable people to travel.
That realization led me to become a travel agent, and create Trips by Greg.
