Travel is a growing popular hobby among the black community as we are traveling to further destinations. According to a study black travel alone generated 63 billion within the United States travel and tourism economy in 2018, yas we are going places! Black pop culture also has a hand in this black travel phenomenon taking place, Beyonce created plenty of Queen Bee buzz last year with the her video “Apeshit” filmed at the Louvre. Tourism bumped a whole 25% since 2017, the Louvre credits the power couple Beyonce and Jay Z for their poplar contribution. The influence “Apeshit” being filmed in the Louvre has had on the black community is that we have the right to be in any space as we please. Here are some of our favorite dope shots of black travelers at the Lourve.

 Paris is said to be one of the most romantic places on earth. Celebrating black love in my opinion brings romance to any scene.

The Mona Lisa doesn’t need to be in focus with all this black girl magic in front. I think we know who is giving better face.

Creating the illusion, we are touching the top of the Lourve is the touristy thing to do, but it’s still cute. From one diamond touching another, we are loving all that shimmer paired with denim.
