And, while it’s astoundingly light, the fact hat the Ventral Lite is made by POC tells me that they ma...

It makes some sense that at the confluence of two industries that tend to marginalize black and brown people — film and travel — that this would occur, but it doesn’t make it any more palatable to accept. While they might be relatively rare, that doesn’t mean that travel movies starring people of color don’t exist. They certainly do. And interestingly...
