Please join us for the Knox County District 5 meeting via Zoom.
What is the the "Black Travel Movement"? How does social inequity affect us and our neighbors when vacationing?
Dr. Stefanie Benjamin, Ph. D. will discuss what the Black Travel Movement is: it's history and where it is today.
Dr. Benjamin is an assistant professor in the Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism Management Department at the University of Tennessee and Co Director for Tourism RESET. Her research interests include social equity in tourism around the intersectionality of race/ethnicity, gender, and people with disabilities. She also researches contents/film-induced tourism, implements improvisational theater games as innovative pedagogy, and is a certified qualitative researcher.
We will also have updates on our efforts to dismantle systemic racism in Knox County, our direct voter contact efforts, KCDP party news, and general good fellowship.
We are still searching for a precinct chair for 69N. If you are able to serve, please let us know.
