Black women are currently having a moment. From the powerful femininity in the blockbuster film Black Panther, to the rise of up and coming talent such as Cardi B and Tiffany Haddish, to Tarana Burke leading the #MeToo movement, to Ava behind the lens of the upcoming A Wrinkle in Time, to black women using our political power to create change in office (hello Keisha Lance Bottoms?!), it’s safe to say that the spotlight is shining brightly on our magic.

Check out these five boutique hotels you didn’t know were owned and operated by Black women.
