Professor Stephanie Evans of Clark Atlanta University has created this very compelling website to tell the travel stories of a wide range of African Americans. Using a mapping tool, Professor Evans worked with 200 different travel narratives to create an interactive map of visited locations. Visitors can use the site to learn about the travelers' impressions of different places, with the hope that this resource will "enhance youth empowerment." A good place to start here is with the places visited by Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois, who visited Canada, England, France, Germany, and many other countries. The site gives users the opportunity to search the database, view the entries by traveler, and look at specific locations around the world, such as Algeria, Accra, and Amsterdam. The list of people covered by the database is extensive, and it includes Alice Walker, Amiri Baraka, and Althea Gibson. The site is quite fascinating, and it can be used in a variety of classroom settings.
