Around the World in Black and White

Traveling as a Biracial, Blended Family

«“A myriad of emotions—from anguish to elation—is experienced when traveling on this year-long odyssey in twenty-two countries. Alongside the amazing sights and friendliness of strangers, the author, who is white, reveals the racism, misogyny, and prejudice that she and her Black husband experience. This memoir transports readers on an amazing and revelatory trip.”
—Evelyn Kohl LaTorre, author of Love in Any Language: A Memoir of a Cross-Cultural Marriage and Between Inca Walls

“Alana Best has a knack for making you feel like you are one of her besties being told another great tale of her family travelling adventure. You get her enthusiasm, and you get private glimpses into her life, her delight and despair. But this is no simple lavish travel trip—this is a rich story where Alana explores her own deepening understanding of what it means to be a white woman travelling with her Black husband and the myriad of assumptions and judgements they face along the way.”
—Yvonne Blomer, former poet laureate and author of Sugar Ride: Cycling from Hanoi to Kuala Lumpur»

Om forfatteren

Alana Best grew up with her parents, two younger sisters, and older brother on the traditional lands of the Treaty 4 Territory, the original lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakota, Lakota, and the homeland of the Métis, also known as Regina, Saskatchewan. As a travel enthusiast, Alana is passionate about being a global citizen, encouraging wanderlust, and living a full life. She believes travel helps create tolerance, understanding, and empathy. She and her husband, Roland, have the pleasure of working and living on the traditional, unceded territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples, with their three incredible children. She and her family love their home in Victoria, British Columbia, and will never stop exploring.
