Melanin On The Map: An App Dedicated to Travelers of Color Looking to Edify Their World

Producer, Journalist, and Founder of travel app 'Melanin On The Map,' Ashley McDonough is a first-generation American whose roots descend from the Caribbean islands. Very early on, she learned the importance of culture, travel, and exploring on a global scale.



A world traveler, having been to over 10 countries by the age of 25, McDonough couldn't help but notice the lack of people of color in many of her travels and made it her mission to change that. By launching Melanin On The Map, the FIRST travel app dedicated to minority travelers, McDonough aims to create a safe space for people of color looking for information, affordable travel, and ways to turn their passion for travel into a paycheck. To learn more, visit their website.
