The Unpopular Black began in 2018 organizing adventures. Courtney soon realized, there were already individuals and organizations doing so. Beginning of 2020, we pivoted to highlight those who were already adventuring. From workshops and collaborative events evolved into the idea of a directory.
Our vision is to create the National Black Adventure Directory that will provide representation, information, and improve accessibility to the outdoors and adventure activities and spaces.
We have a snippet, a preview of the vision of the Black Adventure Directory built. We see it partially as a contributor-based so that when visiting, you know we are sharing this adventure from the first-hand experience. We want to share them almost like adventure stories from the Black perspective. For us to encourage adventure, it's important to feel safe in these spaces.
