About Black Star Travel Group Our mission is to curate concierge-style global travel experiences that introduce countries of indigenous cultures as important destinations for African Americans to experience. We hope discovering the natural beauty, culture, roots, and joy of experiencing people of African descent throughout the world will positively influence and impact how these cultures are viewed in minority communities for generations to come.
Black Star Travel Group was launched with an inaugural New Year’s trip to Accra, Ghana 2019-20. It was a curated travel experience that provided our travelers with an unforgettable opportunity to enjoy the natural scenic beauty, joy, fun, and happiness indigenous to Ghanaian culture and its people. The trip also marked a special commemorative milestone in Ghana’s legacy, as the country celebrated “The Year of Return,” which honored the descendants of Africans who were first captured, enslaved, and shipped from the coast of Ghana to the Americas 400 years ago.
