Bougie Travel Tip: Check out Black Atlas

For those of you who haven't known me long (admittedly most of my readers), my love for American Airlines is legend. Oh yes, they've done me wrong a time or two but for the six straight years when I was on a plane at least three times a month, AA was my joint. Whether jetsetting overseas or hopping a 30-minute flight to LA from San Fran, I was on some American Airlines. I worked for a company whose preferred travel partner was United and still I posted up on American. I have over 1,000,000 (yes that's a million) miles on that airline.

And now American Airlines is reaching out to the African-American community with an interactive blog/website called Black Atlas. It is touted as "Your Passport to the Black Expereince". Heading to Toronto for New Year's Eve or wanna listen to jazz in Minneapolis? This site will give you tips and tours and traveler content galore. Author Nelson George is a "travel expert at large" offering insight into cities such as Miami in the embedded video below.

There's an extremely cool feature that allows you to preview fares from city to city. You are encouraged to write in and submit sotries about the locations and you will notice some familiar names from the blogosphere listed as contributors. If you get a second, check it out!
