Traveling while black in the United States is and always has been a dangerous undertaking. Over the centuries, different laws, practices were put into place to restrict African-Americans’ freedom of movement, among many other basic human rights. At the same time, industrious members of the community have created products, services, and solutions to overcome oppression and regain our freedom and dignity.
