In recent years, the gap between Caucasian and African-American travelers has lessened, making the African American sector of the U.S. population one of the fastest growing markets in the travel industry, according to the bi-monthly publication Black Meetings and Tourism. Based on surveys, polls and U.S. Travel Association research, Associate Publisher/Editor Gloria Herbert reports African Americans encompass 45% of the $125 billion in total revenues produced by multicultural travel. Not to mention, the economic impact of African-American leisure travelers is $48.3 billion. With the travel uptick among black Americans, as well as the blogger boom, has come a rise in unique voices weighing in on a bevy of travel topics—everything from must-have travel gadgets and sites to frequent to restaurant favorites and non-touristy sites to see.

The digital media think-tanks and workshops pointed to smarter, faster, personal and more inclusive platforms and services for everyone to use. At the end of the conference, it was clear that revolutionary changes will take place in music, interaction design, and collaboration and connectivity, among other areas. –Corvida Raven

Huffington Post recently put together an impressive list of Women in Tech You Need to Follow on Twitter, showcasing some of the most dynamic women on the Web. We applaud their accomplishments and the doors they have opened for women. Unfortunately, of the 27 women listed, only two—Jenny Deluxe and Ory Okolloh—were Black digerati. The reality is there are many exceptionally remarkable Black women advancing technology and forming networks where women of all races can be mentored to become digital media iconoclasts.     Noticing the oversight, BlackEnterprise.com compiled our own list of Black Women in Tech You Need to Follow on Twitter, including social media and technology influencers who push digital technology and new media daily on their blogs and various platforms. This list is by no means all-encompassing, but a step in giving credit where credit is rightfully due. —Marcia Wade Talbert
