In Response To: Elaine Lee, Wanderwoman ()
Thanks so much for presenting travel writer, Elaine Lee, to the Afrigeneas Writers Forum. Years ago Essence Magazine published my travel article and photos on Egypt. I spent 5 years traveling back and forth from the US to Egypt and wanted to share Egypt and its beloved people with African American women.
So Elaine Lee's profession as a travel writer brought back some wonderful memories. Her profession as an attorney will inspire all of us to remember that we have more than one career path. And to keep a diary of our travels, whether our destination is to a nearby town or overseas.
I stress keeping a diary because our words and musings become family history. We may never be fortunate enough to find or read our ancestors' letters, but we can ensure that our descendants know us through our diaries and letters.
Elaine's webpage is inspiring. I was about to include the name of a friend in Paris who specializes in tours of Black Paris. Monique like Elaine is a multi-talented woman...a veterinarian, and writer. But I read further and discovered that Elaine already knows Monique Wells of Paris and Houston, Texas. Why shouldn't they have met? Success attracts success.
You and the Afrigeneas Writers will find George Geder's interview with Monique Wells on the Afrigeneas Book Forum.
Below is a posting about earlier African American Travel Writers.
Thanks again for introducing the Afrigeneas Writers Forum to Elaine Lee.
