Most of the African American travel guides stopped publication in the late 1950s and early 1960s. However, in the 1970s it was still believed that there should be a travel guide specifically for African Americans. Bob Hayes, an activist, founded his own travel company serving the black community called The Other Brothers. He published The Black American Travel Guide in 1971, stating that the guide, "provides important historical & political background, the social & cultural climate of each city [and] the life & location of every black community." This guide can be accessed in the Jean Blackwell Hutson Research and Reference Division.
