Henderson Travel, which touts itself as the first black-owned, full-service travel agency in the United States, pioneered genealogical travel to Africa back in the 1950s when it was unheard of. Today the agency is a testament to the growing clout of the African-American travel market, one that reportedly accounted for $63 billion in travel spend in 2018.
With 2019 designated the Year of Return in Ghana, Henderson Travel and Palace Travel, also an Africa specialist, are planning tours that will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the first slave ship to leave Ghana for the Americas. While a tragic anniversary, the tours promise to be a celebration of culture and heritage.
