Visit Savannah Hosts Blacks in Travel & Tourism Leadership for Familiarization Tour

The National Blacks in Travel & Tourism Collaborative (BTT) made its stop in Savannah on their multi-state Black Cultural Heritage Road Trip last week where they met with city and county officials and toured many of Savannah’s culturally significant Black heritage sites. The BTT works with receptive tour operators helping them curate local, immersive Black cultural heritage tour itineraries for cities like Savannah. The Visit Savannah team hosted a luncheon with several Black tourism business leaders, Mayor Van Johnson, and County Commission Chairmen Chester Ellis. Their Savannah itinerary included lunch at Good Times Jazz Restaurant & Bar, stops at Savannah State University, Pin Point Heritage Museum, the Weeping Time Monument, and the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum.
