Tell compelling stories with us

We are a daily (online) multimedia travel magazine that re-introduces you to the world you know – but through a uniquely Black storytelling lens that chronicles and celebrates the places we live and travel, connecting and intertwining race and place.

As our Publisher Ron Stodghill asserts, “As the name DETOUR implies, our approach to travel and storytelling about place seeks to tell these previously under-reported or ignored narratives by shifting away from the customary routes framed in Eurocentrism."

"Through multimedia stories of journeying, exploring, and positioning ourselves in the travel industry in settings both near and far, we are reclaiming our identity as travelers.”

DETOUR brings together journalists, writers, historians, photographers, illustrators and filmmakers to revisit – and, in many cases, revise – the Black cultural narrative worldwide.
