Our mission is to encourage Black adventure beyond the stereotypes and narratives of what Black people "don't do".
Our goal is to show a real representation of Black people adventuring and provide information on how to access outdoor spaces and adventure activities that have been white facing/focused for far too long.
I am currently creating the National Black Adventure Directory (registered as a non-profit 501(c)3 ) as a guide to provide representation, information, and accessibility to the outdoors and adventure activities and spaces.
I envision it as partially contributor-based so that when visiting, you know we are sharing this adventure from the first-hand experience. I want to share them like adventure stories from the Black perspective. For me to encourage adventure, it's a priority to feel safe in these spaces.
To continue encouraging and truly provide a visual representation of what adventure can be, I, (Courtney, The UB founder) plans on tackling an ongoing road trip around the nation to different states, regions, and terrains. The goal here is to connect with Black adventurers and Black-owned adventure businesses. You can help me along by donating to my GoFundMe below.
